In his dissertation research on the Amazon region in the 1980s-1990s, Pace (anthropology, Middle Tennessee State U.) revisited the small rural town that served as the site of Charles Wagley's classic study of indigenous campones (small-farm) life: Amazon Town: A Study of Man in the Tropics (1976). Pace records local adaptations to poverty, ideological conflicts, and liberation theology. Paper edition (unseen), $17.95. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
