Example text

A section of Chapter 10 examines the impact of the reforms of the military government that took power in 1968. Craft Uses: Artisans and Household Producers Household producers can be distinguished from artisans, not by the particular techniques used or ownership of tools, but by the scale of operations and the market. Only those whose products are used primarily by people outside their families will be called artisans. The use of wool in homes and by artisans is extensive in the southern highlands; in many areas, virtually all the adults know how to spin and weave.

The utter destitution of the poorest peasants is also evidenced by child sale. In years of drought and famine, some peasant families are entirely without food. Some give their children to compadres, who treat them much like domestic servants; others sell their children for cash or barter them for agricultural produce. The obverse of this poverty is the wealth found among certain comuneros. Some individuals acquire large herds of animals and a permanent labor supply through occasional violence and the manipulation of various social relations, including kinship ties, reciprocal forms of labor exchange, and community membership.

Domestic Industry Textiles are one of the earliest industrial sectors to develop, both among European nations and the United States—which underwent industrialization in the nineteenth century—and those underdeveloped countries which have experienced it more recently. In the latter case, textiles have the advantage of using locally available raw material to make a well-established consumer good without unduly high initial capital investment; they are classic instances of import-substitution industries.
