Though it originally carried negative connotations, by the mid-twentieth century it had come to symbolize a national unity that transcended racial divides." "In Mestizaje Upside-Down, Javier Sanjines C. contends that the concept is not a true merging of equals, but representative of a fundamentally Western perspective that excludes indigenous ways of viewing the world. In this sophisticated study, he reveals how modernity in Bolivia has depended on a perception, forged during the colonial era, that local cultures need to be uplifted."--Jacket." ;
