Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"An indispensable map and reference for future studies of this new Argentine enigma." - Hispanic American Historical Review

"This is a carefully researched and exciting new book on an important topic that is of current, as well as historical, interest. Taxation and Society in Twentieth-Century Argentina contributes to several vibrant debates on issues including state formation, state capacity in middle-ranking developing economies, the history of taxation and the paradox that is Argentine history."

Colin M. Lewis, professor of Latin American Economic History, London School of Economics
