Overview

"A clear, sympathetic, and often eloquent portrait of an adaptable people making its way in the face of a harsh social and natural environment." --Dwight B. Heath, Ethnohistory

Thomas Sheridan's study of the municipio of Cucurpe, Sonora, offers new insight into the ability of peasants to respond to ecological and political change. In order to survive as small rancher-farmers, the Cucurpeños battle aridity and one another in a society characterized by sharp economic inequality and long-standing conflict over the distribution of land and water.

"A historically sensitive, ethnographically rich, sociologically sophisticated, and very impressive effort to produce the kind of systemic analysis that anthropologists so often strive after, but rarely accomplish." --Emilio F. Moran, American Ethnologist

"Where the Dove Calls is proof that anthropologists can write well--at times even daringly--and be substantively informative and theoretically provocative without losing sight of the subject, society, and the people who live and act in society."

--Daniel Nugent, Journal of Anthropological Research

"Stakes out new methodological and theoretical ground for geographers interested in cultural-ecological and cultural-historical approaches." --Karl S. Zimmer, Annals of the Association of American Geographers

Thomas E. Sheridan is the curator of ethnohistory at the Arizona State Museum. Dr. Sheridan specializes in the ethnology, ethnohistory, and political ecology of the southwestern United States and northern Mexico. He is the author of Arizona: A History, and co-editor of Paths of Life: American Indians in the Southwest and Northern Mexico, both published by the University of Arizona Press.
