Two tropical commodities—coffee and sugar—dominated Latin American export economies in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. When Sugar Ruled: Economy and Society in Northwestern Argentina, Tucumán, 1876–1916 presents a distinctive case that does not quite fit into the pattern of many Latin American sugar economies.
“The most comprehensive work that I have read for the early history of sugar in Tucumán. This is a solid piece of scholarship, one with lasting value.”
James Brennan, University of California, Riverside
