Agrarian Capitalism and the World Market: Buenos Aires in the Pastoral Age, 1840-1890
With the rapid expansion of an international wool market in the 19th century, sheep raising and the wool trade became the most lucrative businesses in Argentina from the 1840s to the 1880s. Sabato focuses on the link between agrarian and mercantile activity to analyze the way in which capitalism took shape in 19th century Argentina.
