Summary Until now, Andean peasants have primarily been thought of by scholars as isolated subsistence farmers, ""resistant"" to money and to different markets in the region. 'Ethnicity, Markets, and Migration in the Andes' overturns this widely held assumption and puts in its place a new perspective as it explores the dynamic between Andean cultural, social, and economice practice and the market forces of a colonial and post colonial mercantile economy.
