Britain and the Making of Argentina

G. Bridger,

Britain and the Making of Argentina
 
 
By 1914 Argentina had become one of the worlds largest trading nations and, according to some, the tenth most prosperous country in the world. She exported more than all the South American countries together. Argentina was the agricultural ‘El Dorado’ of the world. It was principally British technology, British capital and British management, combined with massive immigration from southern Europe, which converted Argentina from an economic backwater into the wealthiest country in South America. Buenos Aires became the richest, most European city, in the southern hemisphere. This sadly neglected history needs retelling as it is not without relevance today. While it is a history of development it has been personalised to bring alive the pioneering achievements of the many thousands of British people who contributed to its transformation. (Its author, a development economist, traces his family’s involvement with Argentina, to its earliest days of independence). Those who have an interest in history and development, especially in Argentina, including academics, journalists, historians, and economists will all find this economic and social history of interest.
