Summary The patterns of social and political life in Latin America from the conquest to independence provide a frame for this study of power and change. Sakari Sariola analyzes the kinds of resistance that power elicits from its subjects, showing that the interactions, values, and attitudes of the people eventually make it more and more difficult for the policy-makers to carry out their original plans.--From publisher's description.
Contents 1. Introduction -- 2. The principle of power: oneness -- 3. Hidden challenge to public power -- 4. Toward overt resistance -- 5. A totalizing view.
