Editorial Reviews

Review

"If Halperín's book owes its interpretive power and revisionist insights to the perspective and ideas of the economists concerned with the roots of Latin American underdevelopment, it tempers these insights with a historian's broad view of historical change, a wide familiarity with primary documents, and an unrivaled command over available secondary sources."—Charles Berquist, University of Washington, Seattle


"The translation of this classic work is long overdue. Halperín's remarkably skillful at interweaving threads of social, political, and economic history into a coherent whole in a way very few historians can."—Deborah Jakubs, Council on Latin American Studies
