La política en las calles Entre el voto y la movilización. Buenos Aires, 1862-1880 [Politics on the Streets. Buenos Aires, 18621880: Voting Rights and Demonstrations] Hilda Sabato isbn 987-558-039-2 2004 | 304 p. | 340 g $ 25 | usd 6,67
According to the author, this book is an inquiry “into the relationship between the few that rule and the many who are ruled, into the political conflict and links between them at a given moment and in a given place: the city of Buenos Aires during the period known as National Organization (18621880)”. Hilda Sabato’s work, praised by critics since it was first published in 1998, covers a clearly-defined place and period, which allows her to examine different forms of political action and representation, relations between ruling elites and their popular followers, political parties and the role of electoral machinery, street demonstrations, and the public sphere as a space of mediation between civil society and the state.

Since the publication of Argentine writer Gastón Gori’s early work in the 1950s, European immigration to the central area of the province of Santa Fe, resulting in the agricultural revolution that transformed Argentina, has been the subject of prolific historical literature. However, there is not much published work on the same issue in the tradition of oral memories. Including three interviews with descendants of Italian immigrants that reached the “gringo” pampas in the late19th Century, this book intends to fill such gap.

This book revolves around the Caribbean region, and its protagonists are Caribbean poets, writers, and intellectuals. So far, modern historiography has failed to adopt the Caribbean as a subject of study, since it has mainly focused on the emergence of “nations” and independent states rather than multiple cultural exchanges, which remain largely unknown. Indeed, the Caribbean is an archipelago with no clear-cut borders or frontiers, whether geographical, political, or linguistic. It is the area where the European conquest of the Americas started. In addition, it has experienced America’s superpower policy since the late-19th Century. The author examines the early years of Caribbean writers Pedro Henríquez Ureña, José Martí, Fernando Ortiz, Ramiro Guerra y Sánchez, and Antonio S. Pedreira in this historical context of exile and diasporas.
