Pressestimmen"The magnificence of this volume lies in Viotti da Costa's plea for political engagement and intellectual integrity, as well as in the superb scholarship that rises to her challenge. This book will inspire a new generation of scholars and teachers of Latin American history to reengage their work and lives in the new politics and political issues bubbling up around the edges of the neoliberal order of global capitalism."--Brooke Larson, author of "Cochabamba, 1550-1900: Colonialism and Agrarian Transformation in Bolivia"
