Mining and agriculture in highland Bolivia: ecology, history, and commerce among the Jukumanis


, : Mining and agriculture in highland Bolivia: ecology, history, and commerce among the Jukumanis. Mining and agriculture in highland Bolivia: ecology, history, and commerce among the Jukumanis: ix + 169pp.

The book examines why the Jukumanis of northern Potosi, Bolivia, found it necessary to mine and how peasants and mine owners form, modify, and break mineral covenants designed to reduce mining risks. The case study rests on field work (January 1979-May 1981) among the Jukumanis and working in the mines in their territory. Their land is pitted with gopher holes and elaborate mining ventures, some dating back to pre-colonial days.

Functional magnetic resonance imaging (FMRI) detects focal MRI signal changes in brain tissue that are believed to result from changes in neuronal activity. We describe the dependence of this response in auditory cortex on the rate of presentation...
