Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This classic history of the Mexican hacienda from the colonial period through the nineteenth century has been reissued in a silver anniversary edition complete with a substantive new introduction and foreword. Eric Van Young explores 150 years of Mexico's economic and rural development, a period when one of history's great empires was trying to extract more resources from its most important colony, and when an arguably capitalist economy was both expanding and taking deeper root. The author explains the development of a regional agrarian system, centered on the landed estates of late colonial Mexico, the central economic and social institution of an overwhelmingly rural society. By highlighting the way haciendas worked and changed over time, this indispensable study illuminates Mexico's economic and social history, the movement for independence, and the origins of the Mexican Revolution.

Book News Annotation:

Van Young (Latin American history, U. of California, San Diego) presents a history of eighteenth century Mexico that concentrates on the societal and economic aspects of the hacienda. He considers how the Guadalajara region became internally integrated, the growth of the urban market as a catalyst, and the expansion of commercialized agriculture to supply the market. He also examines the connection between population growth and agrarian structure. The book is based on many sources, including archives, reports, censuses, tax records, account books, and court cases. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
