This investigation originally developed out of the Guatemalan Earth-
quake Study which was supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF).
It was during the course of this research that financial support was
requested and received from the Agency for International Development
(AID) in order to continue research of the problem central to this in-
vestigation. Even though there were numerous scientists involved in this
study, the analyses of the data and the resulting interpretations, as
well as any miscalculations, are my sole responsibility.
One final comment in prefacing the following manuscript is that much
of the ethnographic observation referred to throughout the text was the
result of my experience as a Peace Corps volunteer in Patzite, El Quiche,
Guatemala from 1978 to 1980. While there, I was involved in projects of
nutritional program, agricultural and community development, which were
aimed at the improvement of the nutritional status of children and the
general overall quality of life. During the course of my Peace Corps
service, I had the opportunity of working in both of the towns under in-
vestigation in this study, San Martin Jilotepeque and San Lucas Toliman.
It was with this background that I undertook the following research.
Here’s what’s next.
