Sovereignty and revolution in the Iberian Atlantic by Jeremy Adelman( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 590 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
Worldly philosopher : the odyssey of Albert O. Hirschman by Jeremy Adelman( Book )

14 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 550 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 432 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
Republic of capital : Buenos Aires and the legal transformation of the Atlantic world by Jeremy Adelman( Book )

18 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 409 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
Frontier development : land, labour, and capital on the wheatlands of Argentina and Canada, 1890-1914 by Jeremy Adelman( Book )

15 editions published between 1989 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 258 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( Book )

8 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 26 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"

The passions and the interests : political arguments for capitalism before its triumph by Albert O Hirschman( Book )

4 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in Spanish and English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume, Albert Hirschman reconstructs the intellectual climate of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries to illuminate the intricate ideological transformation that occurred, wherein the pursuit of material interests - so long condemned as the deadly sin of avarice - was assigned the role of containing the unruly and destructive passions of man. Hirschman here offers a new interpretation for the rise of capitalism, one that emphasizes the continuities between old and new, in contrast to the assumption of a sharp break that is a common feature of both Marxian and Weberian thinking. Among the insights presented here is the ironical finding that capitalism was originally supposed to accomplish exactly what was soon denounced as its worst feature: the repression of the passions in favor of the "harmless," if one-dimensional, interests of commercial life. To portray this lengthy ideological change as an endogenous process, Hirschman draws on the writings of a large number of thinkers, including Montesquieu, Sir James Steuart, and Adam Smith. Featuring a new afterword by Jeremy Adelman and a foreword by Amartya Sen, this Princeton Classics edition of The Passions and the Interests sheds light on the intricate ideological transformation from which capitalism emerged triumphant, and reaffirms Hirschman's stature as one of our most influential and provocative thinkers

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 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Once the wealthiest colony in the British Empire, Jamaica's economic value declined dramatically in the nineteenth century, as the emancipation of enslaved Afro-Jamaicans--and their subsequent large-scale abandonment of their former plantations--relegated the island to minor colony status. But empires gain their force from the breadth of their presence, not simply from their possession of a few key holdings. For those living in minor colonies, the fact that some other place was the most central arena of imperial activity mattered little. What was more important was that their local and imperial government respond adequately to their needs. For this reason, the demands that Jamaican subjects felt entitled to make on the Colonial Office and even Parliament in the wake of these crises provide one measure of how minor colonies continued to exist within imperial systems. As a whole, the project illuminates mechanisms of imperial administration and the interplay between those on the ground--colonial officials, local authorities, ordinary subjects--and the metropolitan government

State and society in conflict : comparative perspectives on Andean crises( )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"State and Society in Conflict analyzes one of the most volatile regions in Latin America, the Andean states of Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia. For the last twenty-five years, crises in these five Andean countries have endangered Latin America's democracies and strained their relations with the United States. As these nations struggle to cope with demands from Washington on security policies (emphasizing drugs and terrorism), neoliberal economics, and democratic politics, their resulting domestic travails can be seen in poor economic growth, unequal wealth distribution, mounting social unrest, and escalating political instability."
