About this book

This book explores the impact on Latin America of the extraordinary transformation of the international economy that took place in the half century or so that preceded the world depression of the 1930s. The authors show how the response varied in terms of both growth and distribution, shaped by varying preconditions, and by natural resources and geography. The interplay of economic developments with political and social structures had profound and varied effects on policy-making and on institutions that were of great significance for later decades.

Reviews

'This is a remarkable project, bringing together the world's leading authorities in the field and some of the best of a rising generation, with a gratifyingly strong representation of Latin American scholarship. The combination of lucid survey chapters with sectoral and national case histories is unique in its quality and scale.' - James Dunkerly

'In The Export Age, Thorp and a distinguished team of authors reexamine Latin America's economic development before the 1930s to advance our understanding of why export growth so often failed to transform the economies of the region.' - Professor Victor Bulmer, University of London

'...a useful and concise source of background information on the economic histories of specific countries...' - Gail D. Triner, Enterprise & Society

'...this large collaborative effort will prove worthwhile to a very wide audience.' - Gail Triner, Latin American Research Review
