Professor of Latin American Studies Ben Fallaw has coedited a new book: State Formation in the Liberal Era: Capitalisms and Claims of Citizenship in Mexico and Peru (The University of Arizona Press, 2020). The book “offers a nuanced exploration of the uneven nature of nation making and economic development in Peru and Mexico. Zeroing in on the period from 1850 to 1950, the book compares and contrasts the radically different paths of development pursued by these two countries,” the publisher reports.
