About this book

Documents the efforts of indigenous peoples to redefine heritage as a proprietary resource. We are taken to settings such as the Mexican state of Chiapas, site of a bioprospecting venture whose legitimacy is questioned by native rights activists. Alternative strategies are proposed for defending the heritage of vulnerable native communities (in diverse fields including botany) without blocking open international communication.
