Global Indigenous Politics Series

Set in the largely urban provincial capital of Quillacollo, ROOSTERS AT MIDNIGHT is an ethnographic examination of the changing stories of what it means to be indigenous but also urban in contemporary Bolivia … and in Latin America … in the context of renewed local-level elections after a hiatus of almost forty years. An alternative to more conventional accounts of collective indigenous mobilization in Bolivia during this period, this book is concerned with the lives and careers of the kinds of provincial politicians who opened up local spaces for Bolivia’s present national indigenous project. It examines how problem-solving networks built up in the neoliberal era along the provincial and urban margins and as part of Bolivia’s “politics and multitude” have made the still contested terms of indigenous belonging more variegated and inclusive. ROOSTERS AT MIDNIGHT links the present high profile of Bolivia’s national indigenous political project to often overlooked and ongoing, decades-long political collaborations among people routinely categorized as noindigenous but “of humble origins.”

Grab your glass and take to the wine trail with food genealogist Sherry Monahan as she traces the roots of California’s VINES, WINES & PIONEERS. While cowboys and early settlers were writing the oft-told history of the Wild West, California’s wine pioneers were cultivating a delicious industry. The story begins when Franciscan missionaries planted the first grapes in Southern California in 1769. Almost a century later, news of gold drew thirsty prospectors and European immigrants to California’s promise of wealth. From Old World vines sprang a robust and varied tradition of wine cultivation that overcame threats of pests and Prohibition to win global prestige. Journey with Monahan as she uncorks this vintage history and savors the stories of California’s historic wineries and vineyards.
