Editorial Reviews


“Brings to bear an extraordinarily rich array of materials on the notion of modernization as a deep set of dislocations. Bergero covers the subject with encyclopedic sweep and in a truly interdisciplinary way. No work that I know of covers this material as completely.”
—Diana Sorensen, Harvard University

“A serious, deep, wonderful endeavor to understand how a complex construction of identities helped to create Buenos Aires as we know it today. What the author has done beautifully is to invite the reader to reconnoiter and understand a city and a culture.”
—Jorge Ruffinelli, Stanford University

”Reveals to the reader a fascinating variety of social texts. A wealth of rich material.”
—Hispanic American Historical Review
