Duke University Press mourns the death of Peruvian anthropologist Carlos Iván Degregori, co-editor (with Robin Kirk and Orrin Starn) of The Peru Reader, the first book in our popular series The Latin America Readers. He died in Peru after a long illness, according to The Peruvian Times. Degregori was one of Peru's most important intellectuals and served as a member of the 2001-2003 Truth and Reconciliation Commission. He wrote frequently in both Spanish and English and contributed a chapter to Steve Stern's Shining and Other Paths: War and Society in Peru, 1980-1995 as well as to many other books on Peruvian history, culture and politics. Friend and colleague Robin Kirk says, "Degregori was a mentor to hundreds of American academics and human rights activists, and as a member of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission brought a humility, generosity and grace to every proceeding he was a part of." We are grateful for his contributions to scholarship.
