Economic History of Twentieth-Century Latin America by Rosemary Thorp

Book Description

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.

Overcoming the Persistence of Inequality and Poverty by Rosemary Thorp Overcoming the Persistence of Inequality and Poverty, Hardback (March 2011)

International experts evaluate new policy directions in economic development and poverty reduction, building on the ideas of a pioneer in the new discipline of Development Studies, Frances Stewart. Combing ideas and evidence on technological change, human development and conflict prevention to address the issue of the persistence of inequality

Ethnicity and the Persistence of Inequality by Rosemary Thorp Ethnicity and the Persistence of Inequality, Hardback (October 2010)

Understanding why inequality is so great and has persevered for centuries in a number of Latin American countries requires tools that go beyond economics.
