Nils Jacobsen challenges the prevailing view that the rural Andes underwent a successful transition to capitalism between the mid-nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

He argues that although the political, economic, and administrative structures of colonialism were gradually dismantled by the regions advancing market economy, colonial modes of constructing power and social identity have lingered on even to this day.The result of painstaking research in remote rural archives, some of them now made inaccessible by the Shining Path, Mirages of Transition will become the definitive work on the Peruvian highlands.
