In this powerful anthropological study of a Bolivian tin mining town, Nash explores the influence of modern industrialization on the traditional culture of Quechua-and-Aymara-speaking Indians.

Technology and Culture

More than an anthropological account of indigenous miners in far off Bolivia, the book is a serious rendering of the contemporary social, economic, and political reality at the industrial world periphery.
