Based on new fieldwork in 1997, Tracy Bachrach Ehlers has updated her classic study of the effects of economic development on the women weavers of San Pedro Sacatepeacute;quez. Revisiting many of the women she interviewed in the 1970s and 1980s and revising her earlier hopeful assessment of women' entrepreneurial opportunities, Ehlers convincingly demonstrates that development and commercial growth in the region have benefited men at the expense of women.

Elizabeth Emma Ferry is assistant professor of anthropology at Brandeis University.
