 Water and Power in Highland Peru: The Cultural Politics of Irrigation and Development
Vividly Illustrating the politically charged nature of highland communities and irrigation systems, Water and Power in Highland Peru provides a new framework for understanding highland communities and Peruvian cultural politics, a model that ca be extended to the study of ethnic conflict and "development" in other regions of the world.
Sifting through the layers of meaning found in the local, ritualized model of irrigation and in the secular, monetary model put forth by the Peruvian state, Gelles shows that these models embody fundamentally different cultural rationales concerning natural resources, power, equity, and efficiency.
Using historical materials and richly detailed ethnographic reporting, Paul H. Gelles shows that water, ethnicity, and power in Cabanaconde, as elsewhere in the Andes, must be understood against the backdrop of the region's colonial past and contemporary nation-builing in Peru.
