    DescriptionThis is the first ethnography to be written about a Campeche Maya community. It examines the surviving Maya traditional technologies and sacred cosmologies and discusses the potential for combining these with modern knowledge and technologies to form an efficient new system that will not only provide for ecologically responsible development but will also make possible the cultural survival of this threatened indigenous population.

    Review quote
    "Faust has provided an engaging ethnographic account on the Yucatec Maya....Her analysis correlates the social life of the Maya, their landscape, and ritual. Details on technological change and exploitation of water resources among the Maya provide a context for consideration of rural development and reflection on the potential for conservation of the natural world. The study is a personal narrative of engagement in the Maya culture by an anthropologist who is committed to advocacy."-Ellen R. Kintz, Ph.D. Chair, Department of Anthropology, SUNY Geneseo
