Foreign capital became indispensable; inland San Lorenzo lost its urban hegemony to the port of Iquique. Nitrates became the major export of the new republic of Peru, and a tarapaqueno, Ramon Castilla, its president. " The bulk of the population worked in the nitrate fields, with 34 LAUTARO NUNEZ one family of Andean origin, the Vilcas, applying traditional labor exchanges to the extraction of nitrates. The valley slopes were depopulated: in 1901 Huarasina had one hundred fifty inhabitants; only four were left in 1971.

Drought helped to accelerate the waves of migrants and to give credence to the idea that the living conditions of the people from the altiplano were becoming more and more difficult. Some decades earlier, a smaller population, a more flexible relation between the haciendas and the communities, and a lesser degree of openness to, or dependence on, the outside would have allowed them to handle more successfully the consequences of a climatic crisis. It is worth noting, moreover, that present-day societies have a greater need for security than those of the past and that they are less and less able to bear, and evaluate as ever more costly, the "fantasies" of nature that for the most part were readily calculable paroxysms within the longer climatic series and for which allowance could have been made in economic planning.

The almost total impossibility of using the older monographs provokes anxiety, since they centered on chronological relations. Students of settlement patterns did not go beyond the morphological-descriptive level while proclaiming their functionalism. But, of course, we cannot expect these researchers to have found something they were not looking for. A new generation of archaeologists emerged at the end of the 1960s, more concerned with ecological integration, as well as economic and social systems.
