A Look Inside
Unpaid Annotation
The essays in this book span Peru's turbulent transition from Spanish rule to independence in 1824. Situated within the sphere of influence of the old Inca capital Cuzco, they represent soundings of resistance and rebellion, backed by years of archival research. From these studies emerges a mosaic that deepens our understanding of the social basis of separatist and subversive Andean politics, incorporating evidence often missing from broader studies.This volume details the Arequipa riots in 1780, the violent Tupac Amaru Rebellion, and the native Andean insurgency within the abortive revolution of 1814-15, uncovering the social basis of subversive politics during this crucial period of political change. Against this violent backdrop, the cultural milieu is seen as an enabling force for insurrectionary politics.
