The people of Quirpini, a rural community in the Bolivian Andes, are inconstant motion. They visit each other's houses, work in their fields, go to nearbytowns for school, market, or official transactions, and travel to Buenos Aires forwage labor. In this rich ethnography, Stuart Alexander Rockefeller describes howthese places become intertwined via circuits constituted by the movement of people, goods, and information. Drawing on the work of Henri LeFebvre, MauriceMerleau-Ponty, and Nancy Munn, Rockefeller argues that by their travels, Quirpinisplay a role in shaping the places they move through. This compelling study makesimportant contributions to contemporary debates about spatiality, temporality, power, and culture.
