The Decline of Community in Zinacantan Economy, Public Life, and Social Stratification, 1960-1987

by Frank Cancian

The Decline of Community in Zinacantan Economy, Public Life, and Social Stratification, 1960-1987 Synopsis

This ambitious, wide-ranging work shows how national economic prosperity and government expansion in Mexico during the 1970's transformed a relatively closed peasant community into a more outwardly connected, socially differentiated society marked by dissension and overt conflict.

The Decline of Community in Zinacantan Economy, Public Life, and Social Stratification, 1960-1987 Press Reviews

This fascinating study is a fine example of the benefits of long-term research in a particular place. It is also an excellent reflection of the sort of anthropological work that 'development professionals' should take seriously. . . . Cancian also contributes to current debates within anthropology. -- Development Policy Review
