A Feast of Flowers
Race, Labor, and Postcolonial Capitalism in Ecuador

University of Pennsylvania Press
In A Feast of Flowers, Christopher Krupa focuses on Ecuador’s booming cut-flower sector and shows how capitalist expansion bound the Global South to new modes of financial dependency and subjected indigenous workers to elaborate forms of racial “improvement” and uplift.
