Sovereignty and revolution in the Iberian Atlantic by Jeremy Adelman ( Book )
7 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book takes a bold new look at both Spain's and Portugal's New World empires in a trans-Atlantic context. It argues that modern notions of sovereignty in the Atlantic world have been unstable, contested, and equivocal from the start. It shows how much contemporary notions of sovereignty emerged in the Americas as a response to European imperial crises in the age of revolutions. Jeremy Adelman reveals how many modern day uncertainties about property, citizenship, and human rights were forged in an epic contest over the very nature of state power in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Sovereignty and Revolution in the Iberian Atlantic offers a new understanding of Latin American and Atlantic history, one the blurs traditional distinctions between the "imperial" and the "colonial." It shows how the Spanish and Portuguese empires responded to the pressures of rival states and merchant capitalism in the eighteenth century. As empires adapted, the ties between colonies and mother countries transformed, recreating trans-Atlantic bonds of loyalty and interests. In the end, colonies repudiated their Iberian loyalties not so much because they sought independent nationhood. Rather, as European conflicts and revolutions swept across the Atlantic, empires were no longer viable models of sovereignty-and there was less to be loyal to. The Old Regimes collapsed before subjects began to imagine new ones in their place. The emergence of Latin American nations - indeed many of our contemporary notions of sovereignty - was the effect, and not the cause, of th breakdown of European empires
Republic of capital : Buenos Aires and the legal transformation of the Atlantic world by Jeremy Adelman ( Book )
17 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This Book is a Political History of economic life. Through a description of the convulsions of long term change from colony to republic in Buenos Aires, Republic of Capital explores Atlantic world transformations in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries." "In studying the legal and political foundations of Argentine capitalism, the author shows how merchants and capitalists coped with massive political upheaval and how political writers and intellectuals sought to forge a model of liberal republicanism. Among the topics examined are the transformation of commercial law, the evolution of liberal political credos, and the saga of political and constitutional turmoil after the collapse of Spanish authority."--Jacket
Worldly philosopher : the odyssey of Albert O. Hirschman by Jeremy Adelman ( Book )
11 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Worldly Philosopher chronicles the times and writings of Albert O. Hirschman, one of the twentieth century's most original and provocative thinkers. In this gripping biography, Jeremy Adelman tells the story of a man shaped by modern horrors and hopes, a worldly intellectual who fought for and wrote in defense of the values of tolerance and change. Born in Berlin in 1915, Hirschman grew up amid the promise and turmoil of the Weimar era, but fled Germany when the Nazis seized power in 1933. Amid hardship and personal tragedy, he volunteered to fight against the fascists in Spain and helped many of Europe's leading artists and intellectuals escape to America after France fell to Hitler. His intellectual career led him to Paris, London, and Trieste, and to academic appointments at Columbia, Harvard, and the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. He was an influential adviser to governments in the United States, Latin America, and Europe, as well as major foundations and the World Bank. Along the way, he wrote some of the most innovative and important books in economics, the social sciences, and the history of ideas. Throughout, he remained committed to his belief that reform is possible, even in the darkest of times. This is the first major account of Hirschman's remarkable life, and a tale of the twentieth century as seen through the story of an astute and passionate observer. Adelman's riveting narrative traces how Hirschman's personal experiences shaped his unique intellectual perspective, and how his enduring legacy is one of hope, open-mindedness, and practical idealism"--
Colonial legacies : the problem of persistence in Latin American history by Jeremy Adelman ( Book )
8 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
More than other Atlantic societies, Latin America is shackled to its past. This collection is an exploration of the binding historical legacies--the making of slavery, patrimonial absolutist states, backward agriculture and the imprint of the Enlightenment--with which Latin America continues to grapple.Leading writers and scholars reflect on how this heritage emerged from colonial institutions and how historians have tackled these legacies over the years, suggesting that these deep encumbrances are why the region has failed to live up to liberal-capitalist expectations. They also invit
Frontier development : land, labour, and capital on the wheatlands of Argentina and Canada, 1890-1914 by Jeremy Adelman ( Book )
13 editions published between 1989 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is a scholarly and stimulating study of settlement and expansion on the frontier lands in Canada and Argentina during their golden years of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Jeremy Adelman challenges many of the assumptions made about the economic 'success' of North America and the 'failure' of Latin America. Based on extensive primary research in Argentina, Canada, and Britain, Dr Adelman's book points to the central importance of property relations in economic history. The distribution, control, and use of land, labour, and capital shaped these emerging economies. At the centre of the analysis is the development of family farming in Canada, and large estates in Argentina. Each system presented opportunities and posed costs - Argentine estates proving more efficient than hitherto argued, while Canadian farms involved high social and economic costs. The approach taken here suggests directions for future research for comparative historians

The essential Hirschman by Albert O Hirschman ( )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Essential Hirschman brings together some of the finest essays in the social sciences, written by one of the twentieth century's most influential and provocative thinkers. Albert O. Hirschman was a master essayist, one who possessed the rare ability to blend the precision of economics with the elegance of literary imagination. In an age in which our academic disciplines require ever-greater specialization and narrowness, it is rare to encounter an intellectual who can transform how we think about inequality by writing about traffic, or who can slip in a quote from Flaubert to reveal something surprising about taxes. The essays gathered here span an astonishing range of topics and perspectives, including industrialization in Latin America, imagining reform as more than repair, the relationship between imagination and leadership, routine thinking and the marketplace, and the ways our arguments affect democratic life. Throughout, we find humor, unforgettable metaphors, brilliant analysis, and elegance of style that give Hirschman such a singular voice. Featuring an introduction by Jeremy Adelman that places each of these essays in context as well as an insightful afterword by Emma Rothschild and Amartya Sen, The Essential Hirschman is the ideal introduction to Hirschman for a new generation of readers and a must-have collection for anyone seeking his most important writings in one book"--

Observando a Colombia : Albert O. Hirschman y la economía del desarrollo by Jeremy Adelman ( )
in Spanish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Los años que Albert O. Hirschman vivió en Colombia le sirvieron para moldear el contenido de su principal publicación: La estrategia del desarrollo económico. La experiencia adquirida durante su estadía en Colombia, donde participó en misiones del gobierno que recorrieron todo el país, le permitió diseñar un meétodo de investigación basado en las prácticas observadas de lo que la gente hacía, contrario a las visiones ortodoxas que planteaban normas a partir de lo que la gente debería hacer. Su crítica a la economía planificadora del desarrollo, basada en el crecimiento balanceado, planteaba la estrategia hacia el desarrollo económico no como una necesidad de superar la escasez de factores sino como una necesidad de mejorar la habildiad de los agentes para tomar decisiones. Sus observaciones de la cotidianidad colombiana le brindaron la evidencia necesaria para entender que los problemas se resolvían en la práctica y le permitieron generar estrategias para facilitar la solución de los problemas a partir del agente económico

The measure of empire: Crisis and responsibility in postemancipation Jamaica by Christienna D Fryar ( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This dissertation examines a range of local and imperial administrative responses to a series of crises in Jamaica after emancipation, from roughly 1840 to 1910. It demonstrates how British authorities adopted an initial default posture of nonintervention at the outset of local crises, viewing these events as colonial problems that should largely be resolved by Jamaican authorities and charities. Any deviations from this policy were strategic calculations designed either to minimize potential embarrassment to Britain or alleviate heightened political tensions between London and Kingston. On one level, the project illuminates a range of administrative practices and moral postures that those involved in running Jamaica employed during moments of crisis and catastrophe. But on another level, the insights gleaned from these case studies explain why the post-emancipation Caribbean remains a crucial site of historical inquiry for scholars of the British Empire
