Write 6 pages with APA style on Analysis of Susanna Sawyers Crude Chronicles: Indigenous Politics, Multinational Oil, and Liberalism in Ecuador. Organization of Indigenous Peoples of Pastaza organized successful protests in 1992 to condemn publicly petroleum policies, built alliances with the grassroots to dispute changes in a 1994 agrarian reform law and added themselves into discussions on constructions of national identities in the 1998 constituent assembly (Sawyer, 2004: 19).
The book challenges the depictions of globalization which has paradoxical effects on our daily lives and social institutions which are politics, economy, education, health among others. It leads to protests than making people docile in the acquisition of homogeneity. Ecuador is the third largest supplier of oil to the western United States. This helps Ecuadorian Amazon to have environmental and social effects of a growing United States demand for petroleum. Rude Chronicles trace the organization that was against the United States in 1990 (Maaka and Andersen, 2006: 7).
From a global context, Sawyer wants to express the machination of power and manipulation of the powers in the world by the super powers. There is an analysis of postcolonial ethnography and field work. In her research, Sawyer examines the maneuvering of (OPIP) which is a powerful ethnic federation of Amazon Ecuador. It represents Achuar, Canelos Quichua, and Shiwiar communities. The chapters of this book revolve around the political background, about oil, land and the relations between Ecuadorian nation and state in which Organization of Indigenous Peoples of Pastaza (OPIP) and other organizations have major roles to play (Sawyer, 2004: 17). The book still discusses the issues of the land and reforms that focus on improvement of the land, for instance, the 1964 Agrarian Reform Law together with the 1994 Agrarian Development Law. These laws were destined to break the communal land ownership into the privatization of lands or modernized perspective of agriculture in Ecuador.
