MEDIA REVIEWS
"Kelly's book provides a timely addition to the anthropological Amazonianist literature that is seeking to locate Indigenous peoples as active agents in contemporary society."--AlterNative

"This introspective and comprehensive study in contemporary Venezuela is a prime example of a new turn taking place in twenty-first-century field anthropology. The most audacious, perspicacious, and practicable of the recent books in its genre."--Roy Wagner, author of Coyote Anthropology
