Agrarian Structure Political Power
Landlord and Peasant in the Making of Latin America
Represents a belated but welcome attempt to relate Latin American to a familiar corpus of grand theory: that propounded by Barrington Moore in his influential Social Origins of Dictatorship and Democracy. . . . The book is a good idea, well executed, and will be read with interest—even by those who have little time for Barrington Moore in particular, or grand theory in general.
