In the early 1990s, historian Javier Balsa interviewed traditional farmers from the province of Buenos Aires to study the impact of the Great Depression on agriculture in the Pampas. However, as he moved on with his survey, something else caught his attention: there was a growing distance between descriptions of everyday life in the farms of the 1920s and 30s, and the evidence he observed in his interviewees and their families while he was conducting his research. These differences involved not only their economic resources, but also their lifestyle, which had been deeply affected. It was in those occasions that he became interested in describing transformations undergone by farmers in the Pampas from the 1930s to the early 1990s, which has given birth to this book.

Debates on the different methods for land possession, such as ownership, leasing, and sharecropping, became increasingly significant in late-19th Century Argentina. This book offers a comprehensive analysis of agricultural policies, their foundational discourse, and their impact on land possession and ownership in the province of Buenos Aires through case studies and a comparative approach that enables the author to account for heterogeneous social production structures and to describe the special relationship among land possession methods, farming activities, and prevailing types of land exploitation. A study of the Benito Juárez, Gonzales Chaves, Bolívar, and Pergamino districts sheds light on patterns and discontinuities in the agricultural policies of the period.

Through an approach that combines contributions from collective action, corporatism, and social movement theories, the author describes the main changes in Argentina’s economic, institutional, and political scenarios in the 1990s, while analyzing their impact on the agricultural sector and its social structure. He also delves into the transformations undergone by these social agents and the associations they participate in, whether economic or political. An attempt to strengthen the new social regime governing capital accumulation has driven the agricultural sector to take a paradoxical turn: technological upgrading has gathered pace, while agricultural output and exports have doubled, but at the same time social and economic farming structures have become more concentrated.
