Inhaltsangabe: This study views the economic transformation of Duaca, Venezuela into a major coffee export center in the late nineteenth century. Yarrington examines the rise of the peasantry to prosperity, yet they later lost their stature as the local elite allied itself with the state to restructure society and coffee production on its own terms in the twentieth-century. The book is a pioneering study on peasant studies, export-led development, the relationship of state and society, and the consolidation of nation-states in Latin America.
Inhaltsangabe: The coffee boom of the 19th and early 20th-centuries transformed much of Latin America, particularly Venezuela, where Duaca grew into a thriving centre for export production. This book analyzes changes in land tenure and social structure and traces the peasantry's fall into exploitation.
