About the Author:

Jonathan C. Brown is Professor of History at the University of Texas at Austin. He has published four single-authored books: A SOCIOECONOMIC HISTORY OF ARGENTINA, 1776-1860 (1979); OIL AND REVOUTION IN MEXICO (1993), LATIN AMERICA: A SOCIAL HISTORY OF THE COLONIAL PERIOD (2000), and A BRIEF HISTORY OF ARGENTINA (2003). Two of these books have been translated and published in Latin America. His first book on Argentina, published by Cambridge University Press, won the Bolton Prize, while the colonial volume won the Hamilton Prize of the University Cooperative Society. Brown also edited a collection of essays on workers and populism in Latin America and co-edited books on the Mexican oil industry and on Argentine social history. He has published articles in the AMERICAN HISTORICAL REVIEW, the LATIN AMERICAN RESEARCH REVIEW, the HISPANIC AMERICAN HISTORICAL REVIEW, and in Mexican and Argentine academic journals. His long-range research project concerns the formation of the Mexican oil workers union. Between 1988 and 1998, Brown directed numerous seminars in U.S. studies for Latin American scholars, as well as a university affiliation project in U.S. studies with the Universidad de Chile that was funded by the United States Information Agency.
