About the Authors
  • Volume One includes the colonial and independence eras up to 1850, linking Latin America's economic history to the pre-Hispanic, European, and African background. It also synthesizes knowledge on the human and environmental impact of the Spanish conquest, the evolution of colonial economic institutions, and the performance of key sectors of the colonial and immediate post-colonial economies. Finally, it provides an analysis of the costs and benefits of independence.

    • Comparative and synthetic allowing readers to understand similarities and differences in the paths of the economies discussed
    • Covers all of Latin American economic history, not just the last two centuries
    • Covers issues like education and the environment which economic histories tend to neglect
