Charles F. Walker
"As Charles F. Walker shows in this fascinating book, the great earthquake that destroyed Lima in 1746 ruptured along social as well as geological fault lines, exposing profound contradictions between baroque piety, Bourbon Reform, and indigenous identity. Moreover, the extraordinary social aftershocks, ranging from revelation to rebellion, further fragmented LimeÑo society, leaving fissures that are still visible in the modern megalopolis."-Mike Davis, author ofPlanet of SlumsCharles F. Walker is the author of 'Shaky Colonialism: The 1746 Earthquake-Tsunami in Lima, Peru, and Its Long Aftermath (a John Hope Franklin Center Book)', published 2008 under ISBN 9780822341895 and ISBN 0822341891.
