The Tiwanaku state was the political and cultural center of ancient Andean civilization for almost 700 years. Identity and Power is the result of ten years of research that has revealed significant new data. Janusek explores the origins, development, and collapse of this ancient state through the lenses of social identities--gender, ethnicity, occupation, for example--and power relations. He combines recent developments in social theory with the archaeological record to create a fascinating and theoretically informed exploration of the history of this important civilization.

Gegenwart und Geschichte der Amerikas sind durchzogen von Herrschaftsverhältnissen, in denen alte und neue Ideen, Darstellungen und Wirklichkeiten permanent verhandelt werden. Innerhalb eines breiten historischen und räumlichen Kontexts fragt dieses Buch, wie Ideen soziale und kulturelle Bedeutung erlangen. Über welche Darstellungsformen werden sie kommuniziert? Wie werden über Ideen und Darstellungen Wirklichkeiten geschaffen? Die Beiträge betrachten symbolische Repräsentationen des Anderen in sozialen Ordnungen in den Amerikas: Sie gehen auf die vor-, koloniale und postkoloniale Zeit ein und beziehen sich vor allem auf den lateinamerikanischen Raum. Im Vordergrund stehen die kulturell konnotierte Vorstellung und symbolische Darstellung von Differenz im Kontext machtpolitischer Auseinandersetzungen und deren unterschiedlich erfahrene Wirklichkeiten.

The Tiwanaku civilization, centred on Lake Titicaca, was of pre-eminent importance in the Andean region, from approximately 500-1100, yet has attracted considerably less attention, both popular and scholarly, than the Incas who came to replace them. Archaeology has only started to focus on the Tiwanaku in a major way in the last twenty or so years; this excellent study surveys and synthesises that research. It looks at the relationship between humans and landscape in the High Andes, examines the emergence of Tinawaku as a socially complex and highly diverse civilization, includes a detailed investigation of the archaeology of the city of Tinawaku, traces the relationship between Tinawaku and neighbouring civilizations, particularly the Wari, and finally charts the collapse of the empire. Challenging yet accessible to the non-specialist, there are plenty of thought provoking conclusions with wider applications for the study of high altitude cultures.
