Review:

From the reviews:

“This edition is an updated and translated version of Sociedades Caboclas Amazônicas: Modernidade e Invisibilidade, published in Portuguese in 2006 ... . The editors must be praised for bringing together theoretical essays and empirical studies in a complementary way. ... it will likely be of great interest to geographers occupied with political ecology, human-environment interactions, and rural smallholder studies. The volume constitutes an invigorating addition to U.S.- and Europe-based Amazonian research ... .” (Mario Cardozo, The Professional Geographer, Vol. 62 (3), August, 2010)
