This study explores the history of the National Development Bank of Argentina, a government-run institution which was created to fund the manufacturing industry in the 1960s and 70s. The author addresses such economic history issue as the performance of a government agency which used to act as an instrument of industrial policy. While the book reveals a clear tendency towards microhistory, it will still enable readers to reflect on general models and initiatives for development and industrialization, governmentcorporate relationships, and the link between macroeconomics and microeconomics.

Las derechas La extrema derecha en la Argentina, el Brasil y Chile, 1890-1939 Original title: Las Derechas. The Extreme Right in Argentina, Brazil, and Chile. 1890-1939 Sandra McGee Deutsch Translated into Spanish by Julio C. Cortés isbn 987-558-046-5 2005 | 528 p. | 780 g $ 45 | usd 12,01

Despite its relevance, early 20th Century Latin American right has received little scholarly attention. If we were to read a list of the published work on Latin America for that century, we would be led to believe that Leftist ideas and revolutionary change have prevailed in this region for the last hundred years. However, Latin American countries have been more often ruled by the Right. Extreme conservative and rightwing movements, even when they are not in power, have consistently managed to remain important. In Las derechas, Sandra McGee Deutsch helps to cover this academic gap through a comparative study of the right in Argentina, Brazil, and Chile from 1890 to 1939.

The so-called “Conquest of the Desert” in Argentina was not so much a military campaign as the creation of a framework to describe relationships between Argentina as a nation and its native peoples. This “desert’s” invention has actually shaped the idea that it was all empty land, therefore deleting from national history any trace of the independent peoples that inhabited those areas before said campaign, in the late 19th Century. What happened to Mapuche and Tehuelche communities after such oppression? How can we follow the steps of surviving families and communities after they were deprived of their lands, confined, divided, and deported?
