Indigeneity, Resources, and the Limitations of a Social Movement State
Following the election of Evo Morales and his political party MAS (Movimiento al Socialismo) to the presidency in 2005, Morales opened up a new arena for radical political change and agrarian reform in Bolivia. In a closer look at contemporary Bolivian politics, this book presents a case study of the Movimiento sin Tierra (Landless Peasant Movement), better known as MST, one of the many new social movements in Bolivia, comprised mostly of displaced peoples from highland rural areas. It examines the cultural strategies of this movement and how they mobilized indigeneity to bring Morales to power and transform law, economy, and the state.
