Economic policy, however, is an aspect in which there is still progress to be made. Peru is perhaps most well known for Machu Picchu, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Presentations from the workshop "Pharmacy from the Rain forest" held in Peru during October 1994. During the preceding two and a half days even the nonchurchgoers in the house would have to live on fish (escaveitched or fried beforehand), hardo bread, and bun-and-cheese.

The ratio of Europeans to Africans at any particular point in the history of the development of a creole must have affected the process of development in important ways. The culture of Africa brought by Africans who survived the Trans-Atlantic slave trade, which has influenced for instance dance, music, cuisine, and religion, especially in countries such as Dominican Republic, Brazil, Panama, Uruguay, Colombia, Haiti, Cuba, and Puerto Rico. 19th- and 20th-century immigration (e.g. from Spain, Italy, Germany, France and Eastern Europe) also transformed especially countries such as Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil (particular the southeast and southern regions), Cuba, Chile, Venezuela and Mexico (particularly the northern region).

Administered by LACEA (Latin America and the Caribbean Economic Association) and with the initial support of international organizations such as the World Bank, the Inter-American Development Bank and the Development Bank of Latin America (CAF), the first phase of the LACER-LACEA project is currently launched. African instruments (primarily percussive) found in both unaltered and adapted forms, with many regional names and variations, include long drums, often in "family" sets of three (congas), iron gongs, internal or external rattles (maracas, shekere), "thumb piano" (marimbula), marimbas, and concussion sticks (claves). (Clave is also the name of an important syncopated rhythmic figure.) The "steel drum" (tuned metal barrel) associated with Trinidad's CALYPSO has no direct African equivalent but evolved from drum ensembles.

Mantz of California State University, Stanislaus, notes that the contents ¿reflect the insights of an anthropologist who knows Latin America intimately and extensively.¿ Why Study the Anthropology of Latin America and the Caribbean? The resource-rich nature of most Latin American economies has also led to an inward concentration of investment, and a tendency to collaborate with outside investors rather than venture into unknown and risky markets. The Achuar are attempting to evict the oil company by suing them for environmental damage to their land, which has contaminated drinking water, killed crops and game, and caused health problems among the Achuar.

But most of them return, if not to live, though thousands do every year, then to visit 'The Rock*—one of the many affectionate names for the island, others being 'Jamdown,' 'JA,' or simply 'Yard.* Family occasions such as weddings, funerals, anniversaries, special birthdays, and christenings exert a natural pull back; and such occasions are used to renew acquaintance with people and places across the island. Major themes addressed include (1) imperialism and colonialism, (2) neoliberal restructuring and theories of the state in the periphery, (3) revolution and social movement theory, (4) globalization and the formation of transnational communities.
