Contents Notes
"A well-written and sympathetic biography of the late Chico Mendes, leader of the Acre rubber tappers who was assassinated in Dec. 1988. Uses biographical format successfully to probe the wider economic, social, and political questions of Amazonian development. Excellent for classroom use"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 57.
