A partir de los angeles suggestion rectora de que América Latina es una construcción histórica que se constituye desde su origen como unidad estructuralmente desigual y diversa, Waldo Ansaldi y Verónica Giordano despliegan en este libro un análisis de los angeles realidad histórica, social y política de los angeles región, que puede leerse de dos maneras complementarias: como una historia social de lo político y, también, como una historia política de lo social. A diferencia de l. a. perspectiva que adopta en pensamiento conservador, el pensamiento crítico puesto en acto en este volumen propone que el orden es una construcción histórica, colectiva, política y conflictiva. l. a. formación del Estado, l. a. creación de l. a. nación y l. a. constitución de las condiciones que posibilitaron los angeles inserción internacional de nuestra economía son los procesos sobre los que se enfoca y desarrolla el riguroso análisis de los autores. América Latina, l. a. construcción del orden no pretende reconstruir paso a paso l. a. historia de l. a. región, sino advertir sobre l. a. compleja trama de procesos en l. a. construcción del orden, en el que las cuestiones del poder, l. a. explotación y l. a. dominación se encuentran en un primer plano. En palabras del destacado investigador Norbert Lechner, si el orden no es concebido como acción colectiva, “la diversidad no logra ser asumida como pluralidad, sino que es vivida como una desintegración cada vez más insoportable”. Pensada en dos volúmenes, esta primer entrega de América Latina. l. a. construcción del orden se convertirá sin duda en un clásico de obligada referencia para los estudios acerca de l. a. región.

Sample text

This aspect of social use is conditioned by the class relations of the society in question and by the characteristics of its economic structure. Viewed from this perspective, the economic effects of the railroads would reveal all their wealth and complexity. We assessed the specific use made of railroad transportation in Cuba, not just its abstract economic impact. We began our analysis with the reduction of transportation costs that stemmed from the use of the railroads, computing its importance not only in general terms but also by productive sector.

Because the history of these Cuban railroads is in large measure the history of the Cuban people, it is also, in part, the history of the Caribbean people. With or without railroads, the forces of external constraint have been common, and the sad social and economic neglects all too familiar and all too frequent throughout the region. Therein lies the wider significance of Sugar and Railroads. The railroad is, in many ways, a melancholy metaphor for Caribbean life and times. FRANKLIN W. KNIGHT JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY Page xix Preface Cuba was the seventh country in the world to have railroad transportation, but, for a long time, it lacked a history of its railroads.

KNIGHT JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY Page xix Preface Cuba was the seventh country in the world to have railroad transportation, but, for a long time, it lacked a history of its railroads. Except for small monographs and some articles, most of which were on the introduction of railroads in the island in the mid-nineteenth century, very little was published about the development of that means of transportation of such crucial importance in the evolution of the Cuban economy.
