Bei Sean Kingston Publishing ist der von Prof. Dr. Ernst Halbmayer herausgegebene Sammelband “Indigenous Modernities in South America“ erschienen, mit Beiträgen von Elke Mader, Dan Rosengreen, Anne Meiser, Wolfgang Kapfhammer, Luiza Garnelo, Anibal G. Arregui und Katinka Weber.

Norman E. Whitten, University of Illinois, schreibt zu dieser Veröffentlichung: “Indigeneous Modernities in South America makes a major contribution to South American studies and is a 'must read' for every ethnographer, historian, ethnohistorian, and analyst of South American peoples. It challenges the very basis of so-called 'modernization theory' and opens new doors to the understanding of indigenous agency and indigenous powers.“
Bernd Brabec de Mori, Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst Graz, betont: “This book is one step (and an important one, might it even be a giant leap?) to decolonizing the mind, as the reader is confronted with an intermingling multitude of perspectives, values, worldviews and futures. This book is especially valuable for senior scholars and students alike, for anybody seriously concerned with social processes of marginalization, resistance, adaptation, appropriation and the creative and constructive shaping of social realities.”
