Peru, 1890-1977 : growth and policy in an open economy by Rosemary Thorp( Book )

Este trabajo se centra en el período, de casi 100 años de duración, que se inicia con el fin de la era del guano. En realidad, la historia económica post colonial del Perú puede ser vista como una serie de grandes ciclos de exportación y, por eso mismo, los sectores productivos orientados hacia el mercado externo han desempeñado un papel primordial en la configuración económica de nuestro país. Esta obra reconstruye de manera pormenorizada la historia a partir del momento en que se empieza a explorar, en la década de 1890, las nuevas direcciones del primer período de transición, y concluye cuando la economía entra en crisis a mediados de la década de 1970. Este libro constituye un clásico de la historia económica del Perú. Su revisión es una lectura obligada para todos aquellos que desean comprender las características estructurales de nuestra economía.

Gender inequalities and development in Latin America during the twentieth century by María Magdalena Camou( Book )
9 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 33 libraries worldwide
This book presents evidence of the evolution of the gender inequalities in Latin America during the twentieth century, using basic indicators of human development, namely education, health and the labour market. There are very few historical studies that centre on gender as the main analytical category in Latin America, so this book breaks new ground. Using case-studies from Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Uruguay, the authors show that there is evidence of a correlation between economic growth and the decrease in gender inequality, but this process is also not linear. Although the activity rate of women was high at the beginning of the twentieth century, female participation in the labour market diminished, until the 1970s, when it began to increase dramatically. Since the 1970s, fertility reduction and education improvements and worsening labour market conditions are associated to the steadily increase of women participation in the labour market. By gauging the extent to which gender gaps in the formation of human capital, access to resources, quality of life and opportunities may have operated as a restriction on women's capabilities and on economic growth in the region, this book demonstrates that Latin America has lagged behind in terms of gender equality
