    The descriptions of indigenous modes of sustainable agriculture are inspiring, and should be paid attention to We have a lot to learn about sustainable development, and most of the things we can learn from the people who have lived on the land.

    I d recommend this book for its last 40 pages The part where he begins discussing the effects of deforestation are very well written and infuriating You may have heard that deforestation is bad and unsustainable but if you read this you will truly understand how absurd the current situation is and really criminal Colonialism lives on He begins the book by discussing Guarani life in the 1980s and then in the last 40 or so pages how it has changed, and it is an amazing device, because as each I d recommend this book for its last 40 pages The part where he begins discussing the effects of deforestation are very well written and infuriating You may have heard that deforestation is bad and unsustainable but if you read this you will truly understand how absurd the current situation is and really criminal Colonialism lives on He begins the book by discussing Guarani life in the 1980s and then in the last 40 or so pages how it has changed, and it is an amazing device, because as each new injustice is revealed I am left absolutely indignant on behalf of these people The World Bank loans, the Paraguan government s lies that they would title land to the people, the claims that there weren t any indigenous peoples there, the invasion like description of how the forest started to collapse around them, the rise of debt, malnutrition, suicide rates, loss of traditional life ways, loss of biodiversity, the state appointed leaders who act like their ownersIt is shocking to me that such moral bankruptcy on such a large scale continues in the modern age Most of the forest in Paraguay is gone It was cut down and used up, and then a new portion of land was moved to, and it is a completely unsustainable system, forever destroying the forest and the lives of those who live there.The beginning part of the book is not very indepth and kind of the usual simplistic anthropological fare I was sensitive to the fact that he said Guarani society is traditionally mostly egalitarian and yet most of their religious leaders were traditionally men and onwards He also states that Guarani live in nuclear families Does this mean there are 0 trans or gay people What about intersex people There is also little on Guarani beliefs around animals besides their use as resources It would ve interested me for these topics to be explored
