Earth Politics: Religion, Decolonization, and Bolivia's Indigenous Intellectuals cover image
An intimate look at the lives of four significant indigenous activist-intellectuals in twentieth-century Bolivia. These men created a discourse of decolonization rooted in part in native religion. Based partly on his extraordinary access to the archives kept by the leaders’ families, the Bolivia-born, Aymara-speaking author develops an analysis of Bolivian indigenous activism unparalleled in its nuance and depth.
