In “Revolution in the Andes,” Serulnikov analyzes the various rebel movements that appeared in
the Andes in the late eighteenth century. He compares the social composition of such events and
the motivations of the leaders and followers. He demonstrates that despite the remarkable
mobilization of Indian masses, these rebellious movements did not divide the colonial population
by racial or social groups but gathered people from different social backgrounds, at least initially.
Serulnikov recounts how the administrative and economic reforms of the eighteenth century had
increased the grievances of the native population and caused hardships to other social groups. If
individuals from various social groups were dissatisfied by the colonial rule, why did these
rebellions not succeed?
