AUTHOR

McGee, R. Jon

SUMMARY

In Watching Lacandon Maya Lives , the author follows three generations of one Lacandon Maya family. Readers track the subjects' lives as they shift through events such as marriage, parenthood, and religious conversion, all set against a backdrop of increased tourism, road construction, and the murders of two people in the community. Watching Lacandon Maya Lives encompasses both ethnography and a critique of ethnographic writing. At one level, the book is about social, agricultural, technological, and religious changes that have occurred in a Lacandon Maya community in Mexico. At a second level, the book is a critique of those who invented a Utopian picture of a traditional Lacandon past that never really existed.McGee, R. Jon is the author of 'Watching Lacandon Maya Lives', published 2002 under ISBN 9780205332182 and ISBN 0205332188.
