Reviews

“Larsen’s book focuses on the Ceja de Selva, or high rainforest of central Peru, and its move in recent decades to what he categorizes as ‘the post-frontier’. … Larsen aims to bring out the complexity and contradictions of this situation, a task he accomplishes very effectively. … an important piece of work, elucidating as it does the contemporary reality of an indigenous people that has implications beyond the Peruvian context.” (Evan Killick, Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute, Vol. 22 (3), September, 2016)
