Most Helpful Customer Reviews

A comprehensive evaluation of the risks and benefits of hydropower development projects, as well as how those directly affected comprehend those risks and benefits.

This text does not romanticize or patronize the Naso. In doing this, Paiement has written a sympathetic, but critical assessment that seriously considers Naso practices and ideas. His advocacy is limited, balanced and so far very successful. Rather than lighting ideological fires (as Bourgois did) or elevating objectivity into political irrelevance (as Rudolf did), Paiement has become a key contributor to the empowerment of the Naso people.
