"From Silver to Cocaine is an ambitious and novel application of the 'commodity chain' approach to the insertion of a whole continent into the world economy. It has no rivals."--William Gervase Clarence-Smith, author of Cocoa and Chocolate, 1765-1914 "From Silver to Cocaine is an important and innovative collection. It provides a corrective to the purely national studies of commodities and of export sectors, and to studies that posit influence in only one direction, focusing on the international penetration of capital and trade into Latin America. This book makes a strong statement about the direction of future research: it should be required reading for anyone interested in the economic history of Latin America, broadly conceived."--Edward Beatty, Kellogg Institute for International Studies, University of Notre Dame
