There is still little knowledge about colonization processes through the Northwestern border of the Chaco province in the late-nineteenth and earlytwentieth centuries. This book explores disciplining and assimilation attempts introduced by religious missions in native communities of the area, including a reconstruction of inter-ethnical relationships, land settlement and expropriation processes, and the main features of production. The scenario is an infant Nation-State, where the provinces of Salta and Jujuy endow the borders of Chaco with a specific economic role. The history of this region’s incorporation is analyzed under the light of both national-level projects and local-level processes. The border is approached as a subject that can be historicized, describing its singularities and the relationships it established with the nation as whole.

This book examines land possession and privatization, as well as the creation of a land market in the Pampas region while capitalism was developing in the area. The author focuses on the Chascomús, Ranchos, and Monte districts, which were especially attractive to land settlers in 1779, when frontier expansion was launched, until 1880, when the so-called “Conquest of the Desert” military campaign came to an end. This local approach has enabled the author to identify each of the methods implemented to assign public lands to private hands, such as donations, auctions, sales, emphyteusis, and a kind of lease known as moderada composición.

This volume gathers articles by an interdisciplinary team of geographers and historians seeking to account for the processes that have turned the Argentine provinces of Mendoza and San Juan into one of the first “regional economies” in the country, which is now known as Argentina’s Wine Region. The examined period is plenty of transformations towards a new economic, social, and territorial configuration, driven by the overwhelming force of capitalism, which would help integrate the region into the national realm, establishing links between its economic activity and the domestic market, while breaking a long-standing tradition of shared interests with Chile.
