This is the most comprehensive comparative study of the agrarian systems of the frontier lands of Argentina and Canada in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Jeremy Adelman challenges much received wisdom about the economic "success" of North America and the "failure" of Latin America. Based on extensive primary research in Argentina, Canada, and Britain, Adelman's book points to the central importance of property relations in economic history in these regions.
