El Mundo andino: Población, medio ambiente y economía

by John V. Murra

Twenty-two articles on Andean history written or published in the last forty years by John Murra. Some have not appeared in Spanish before or could only be found in hard-to-find journals. Murra's work on Andean culture is based primarily on ethnohistory, representing a convergence of anthropological and historical methods. His analysis also incorporates information from other disciplines, including archaeology, botany, metallurgy, geography, ecology, agronomy, and linguistics. Murra was a pioneer in using the chronicles of the Spanish conquest, including Visitas and bureaucratic reports such as those by Polo de Ondegardo, to reconstruct the history of Tawantinsuyu. In Spanish.
