The Re-encounter of Indianismo and Marxism in the Work of Álvaro García Linera

The Re-encounter of Indianismo and Marxism in the Work of Álvaro García Linera

By Irina Alexandra Feldman. In his impor­tant arti­cle about the his­tory of Marx­ism and Indi­an­ismo in Bolivia, Álvaro Gar­cía Lin­era tells the story of the “missed encounter of the two rev­o­lu­tion­ary rea­sons.” He presents the post-colonial Boli­vian con­text as a space of com­plex engage­ments for the Marx­ist tra­di­tion.
