Philadelphia, PA, U.S.A.: University of Pennsylvania Press, 1994. Trade Paperback. Near Fine. This book provides an ethnographic and historical analysis of the dynamics of class and culture in Tiraque, a province in the highlands of Cochabamba, Bolivia; it focuses on the changing conditions of production that give rise to and shape class relations and traces the formation of a landowning peasantry, a process that began in the 1800s and accelerated after the revolution of 1952, and the emergence of a rural class of merchants and transporters who extract surplus from the peasantry by a combination of alliances in production and reliance on traditional practices to consolidate its hold over production, the same cultural practices the peasants have used in an attempt to maintain a certain degree of autonomy from control by the merchants (red & white pictorial cover with photo of a Bolivian woman with child tending sheep in Tiraque, slight corner crease, otherwise a bright, clean, tight copy)

This is the original HarperCollins Academic edition of the book later reprinted by Routledge (with the same ISBN); this book explores the concept of an equitable distribution of resources; it examines the principle interpretations of equity used by economists and political philosophers and argues that none captures the essence of the term as well as an alternative conception relating equity to the existence of individual choice; it shows that this conception is not only well-grounded philosophically but also directly relevant to distributional policy; the theoretical argument is complemented by detailed discussion of the application of the central idea to specific policy areas; it also includes chapters on the trade-off between equity and efficiencty, and on the incorporation of equity considerations into the measurement of changes in economic welfare (blue cover with white lettering, one corner creased; otherwise a bright,… Read More
