The People Are King

The Making of an Indigenous Andean Politics

S. Elizabeth Penry

  • Proposes a new theory of how Andean indigenous communities interacted with Spaniards to bring about self-government over 300 years of colonialism
  • Based on original letters written by and to Andeans that reveal how the indigenous commoners shaped their own community identities
  • Introduces a new and controversial thesis that Andean rebellions against Spaniards were a forward-thinking effort to guarantee their rights, based on an understanding of eighteenth-century political philosophy
