QUERY: Suggestions for readings on neocolonialism (1870-1930) in South America

Eric Rodrigo's picture

Any suggestions for a reading on the extractive economy or other aspects of neocolonialism in South America - perhaps Southern Cone specifically? It's for a class on Revolution in Latin America and I was looking for something beyond the usual discussions of United Fruit in Central America. Ideally, this book would serve as background for nationalist movements in Chile or Argentina.

Thomas O'Brien's book, The Revolutionary Mission, has very useful chapters on mining and the growth of nationalist resistance in Peru and Chile, but it is 25 years since it was published.
