Overview

Globalization has reached even the most remote areas of Latin America, pushing traditional peoples and habitats to the brink of extinction and offering a stark choice: adapt or perish. Local communities are scrambling to adjust to new market and social realities while trying to hold on to those cultural values that they regard as non-negotiable.

This book tells the important story of three Latin American communities experiencing globalization at the point of contact between tradition and modernity: Brazil's rubber tappers, Bolivia's Guaraní Indians, and Nicaragua's women cooperativists. Through exclusive, in-depth interviews, Heyck describes globalization and development in the words of people who are experiencing these forces at the grassroots level. The result is a multifaceted understanding of local and global connections and of the human, cultural, and religious dimensions of globalization.
