This is the new edition of the highly acclaimed "Latin America in the 1930s," a text which has proved invaluable for teachers, researchers and students alike. The second edition has been revised and updated, including a new preface and updated statistical material, to form the second volume in the "Economic History of Twentieth-Century Latin America." This book confronts the puzzle of Latin America's rapid recovery from the collapse in world markets and capital flows in the late 1920s. It shows how far the safety valves which made recovery possible in the 1930s were not available fifty years later. It documents the impact of crisis on the changing role of the state and on institutional development. The Central American case studies have been updated with significantly improved data.

The combination of lucid survey chapters with sectoral and national case histories is unique in its quality and scale.' - James Dunkerly

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