Post-peasant capitalist graziers : the 21st century in Southern Bolivia

Special issue on integrating natural and social environmental science

Auteur :
PRESTON, D.

Description :
Author challenges orthodox position that livestock grazing causes increased environmental degradation. He examines the grazing part of the household livelihood strategies of rural people in Tarija, Bolivia, who use a range of micro-environments in a sustainable manner and rely on grazing as part of their survival strategy in the ever more transnational economy. Cattle grazing is also a rational way to accumulate capital in the face of local out-migration and rural depopulation. - (SLD)
