About the Author
Jonathan Reynolds (Ph.D., Yale, 1999) conducts ethnographic, linguistic, and archaeological research in Central America. He has published and presented more than fifty papers and is the author of two books on the Maya and Guatemala. He has taught at Arizona State University and the University of New Mexico and has been a research associate at the University of Pennsylvania and the Museum of New Mexico. Sponsors of his work include the National Geographic Society, the Mellon Foundation, and Earthwatch Institute; he was named Earthwatch's Young Scientist of the Year in 2004. In recent years his interests have broadened to include colonial, post-colonial and more recent social and political history in Central America. Based in these historical and anthropological perspectives his critiques of US imperial power and foreign policy are complemented by long study of critical or reflexive Continental philosophy and neo-Marxist social history and theory.
