Based on Enrique Mayer's 30 years of research in Peru, this collection of new and revised essays presents in one accessible volume Mayer's most significant statements on Andean peasant economies from precolonial times to the present. As a result, The Articulated Peasant is noteworthy as a sustained examination of household economies through changing historical circumstances, while considering also the relationship of the environment to systems of land use and agricultural production, notably through "verticality models" of exchange between environmental zones. Though the volume stresses the Andean context, its relevancy is wider. It will resonate with people and organizations struggling with issues of development in Latin America or elsewhere where the units of production and consumption are largely household based.
