A team of social scientists and historians examine the relationship of agrarian structures to social and political structures and processes in Latin American during the 19th and 20th centuries. They balance models that show patterns and generalizations, with an acknowledgment of the diversity of historical experience. Among the topics are landlord and campesino in Chili, the Buenos Aires landed class 1820-1930, agrarian movements and national politics in 19th-century Mexico and Peru, and applying Barrington Moore's model.

Evelyne Huber is Morehead Alumni Professor of Political Science and chair of the department of political science at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.Review:
“Represents a belated but welcome attempt to relate Latin American to a familiar corpus of grand theory: that propounded by Barrington Moore in his influential Social Origins of Dictatorship and Democracy. . . . The book is a good idea, well executed, and will be read with interest—even by those who have little time for Barrington Moore in particular, or grand theory in general.”
—Latin American Studies
“A thorough and rigorous text of the Moorean paradigm for Latin America. Here we have an extraordinarily valuable and diverse set of essays on the historical formation of Latin American political cultures and the importance of agrarian structures therein.”
“This is a book that has been waiting to be written for some time. The contributors include some of the giants in the field [who] will inspire others to write on this subject.”
—Mitchell A. Seligson
