Ejidos and Regions of Refuge in Northwestern Mexico
The ten essays in this volume present case studies of different cultural groups in northwestern Mexico, analyzed through the concepts of enclaves and regions of refugee initially proposed by Edward Spicer and Gonzalo Aguirre Beltran.
“Taken together, these essays, accompanied by suitable maps and revealing photographs, provide a solid, useful update on these ethnic ways in northwestern Mexico and anthropological interpretations of them.”—American Anthropologist
“This slim but important volume is a transitional work, one that attempts to bridge two very different traditions in the anthropological study of indigenous communities. . . . Succinct and provocative.”—American Indian Quarterly
“Many of the ideas expressed are provocative, much of the information is new; the bibliography is extensive.”—Arizona Daily Star
