El Pensamiento Económico Hispanoamericano en Baquíjano y Carrillo

Arcila Farías, Eduardo, El pensamiento económico hispanoamericano en Baquíjano y Carrillo, Caracas: Consejo Nacional de la Cultura, Centro de Estudios Latinoamericanos Rómulo Gallegos, 1976.

José Javier Leandro de Baquíjano y Carrillo de Córdoba, III conde de Vistaflorida (1751 - 1817) fue un precursor de la Independencia del Perú.
Baquíjano escribió El Elogio a Jáuregui en la Universidad de San Marcos en 1781, discurso con el que le dio la bienvenida al virrey Agustín de Jáuregui y en el que destaca su protesta al sistema colonial, pues sabía que el cambio era necesario e ineludible. Sin embargo, no apoyó la ruptura con Españoles.

José Javier de Baquíjano y Carrillo de Córdoba, III Count of Vistaflorida (March 12, 1751, Lima, Peru—January 24, 1817, Seville, Spain) was a Spanish/Peruvian economist and jurist, writer and politician, and one of the first great intellectuals of the Viceroyalty of Peru.
He was celebrated for his speech welcoming the new viceroy Agustín de Jáuregui to Lima in 1780. This was published in 1781 as El elogio a Jáuregui, and was mixed with strong criticism of the viceregal government.

A True and Exact History of the Island of Barbadoes, 1647-1650 (Abridged)

Ligon, Richard, A True and Exact History of the Island of Barbadoes, 1647-1650 (Abridged), Kingston: Extra-Mural Department, University College of the West Indies, 1950.

Richard Ligon (1585?–1662), a British author, lost his fortune as a royalist during the English Civil War (1642-1651), and during this turbulent time in England he found himself, as he notes in his narrative, a "stranger in my own country." On 14 June 1647, he left for Barbados to gain his fortune in the New World, like many of his fellow countrymen. Ligon purchased half of a sugar plantation in Barbados. After two years residence on the island he was attacked by a fever, and returned to England in 1650. He was soon afterward put into prison by his creditors.

The Folk Culture of the Slaves in Jamaica

Brathwaite, Edward, The folk culture of the slaves in Jamaica, London: New Beacon Books, 1970.

From the George Padmore Institute:
This book sets out in concise terms Brathwaite’s historical argument for the fundamental link between black African cultures and Caribbean folk culture. It makes the case for a productive, synthesised culture emerging from the depravity of transatlantic slavery, a thesis which has since been reiterated and developed widely in work by Paul Gilroy, Stuart Hall and many others.

Guayana Esequiba

Cabrera Sifontes, Horacio, Guayana Esequiba, Caracas: Editorial Arte, 1970.

Lcdo. Américo Fernández:
El ex senador Horacio Cabrera Sifontes, en un libro sobre la Guayana Esequiba dado a la luz y llegado hasta esta corresponsalía por cortesía de él mismo, analiza y comenta importantes documentos existentes sobre los derechos de Venezuela al lindero del Esequibo y pone en evidencia que el título británico de propiedad de tierras emana de los holandeses a quienes España dio territorio del lado oriental del río Esequibo y cuyo punto más cercano de ocupación era Kykoveral.

Guayana Esequiba is the name that Venezuela calls a region that it claims in the west of Guyana. Its area is 159,500 square kilometers. Guyana calls this area the six administrative regions of Barima-Waini, Cuyuni-Mazaruni, Pomeroon-Supenaam, Potaro-Siparuni, Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo and Essequibo Islands-West Demerara.

Denmark's National Record Office

Denmark Rigsarkivet, Denmark's National Record Office, Copenhagen: Bianco Lunos Bogtrykkeri, 1948.

Page 3:
In the Middle Ages the Kings of Denmark seem to have carried their correspondence with them on their travels round about the country. Later the national archives were deposited in the royal castles in Kalundborg and Vordingborg, and were placed under the supervision of a “Custos Capellae”. Not for a generation after the introduction of the Reformation (1536) can one speak of the establishment of a permanent Central Archives or Record Office in Denmark, the most important national archives being collected together in Copenhagen Castle in 1582.

Chronique d’histoire d'Outre-Mer: Les Antilles Françaises (1970-1974)

Debien, Gabriel, Chronique d’histoire d'Outre-Mer: Les Antilles françaises (1970-1974), Revue Française d'Histoire d'Outre-Mer, no. 230-231, 1976 & no. 234, 1977.

Disponible en ligne ici.

The reaction of French opinion at various points of the Algerian war, how they considered the solution to the Algerian question and the future of Algeria is the aim of this study, based mainly on I.F.O.P. sample surveys, the only ones to have been regularly conducted in France. It shows that partisans of “French Algeria” were few, even after May 13th 1958, and support for compatriots in Algeria rather faint. Beyond the antagonism and uncertainty of the French, who never were unanimous on the question and pronounced themselves according to their own ideology, a certain indifference tainted with hostility can be discerned, as was the case in each colonial crisis. The presumptive resignation of the French to the loss of Algeria will perhaps surprise those who lived through the Algerian tumult, though not those who know the deep pacifism of opinion. The dread of an unending war prevailed over all other feelings.

Race vs. Politics in Guyana: Political Cleavages and Political Mobilisation in the 1968 General Election

Greene, J. E., Race vs. politics in Guyana: political cleavages and political mobilisation in the 1968 general election, Mona, Jamaica: Institute of Social and Economic Research, 1974.

Reviewed in the American Political Science Review / Volume 71 / Issue 03 / September 1977.

From the Preface:
This study is about the 1968 general election in Guyana. It argues that while racial cleavage within the society is the single most important determinant of political behaviour, party organisation provides the motive force behind ‘the people’s choice’. Using aggregate and survey data, the study shows that between 1953 (when the first election under universal adult suffrage was held) and 1968, party identification and political mobilisation had shifted from those based on class antagonism to those based on racial disaffection. However, the change in the electoral machinery – from a system of plurality voting to proportional representation – had forced parties to reform their campaign strategy. The emphasis is on votes gained rather than on seats won. As a result, the local party organisations have become important sources of electoral mobilisation.

Un plan d'invasion de la Jamaïque en 1799 et la politique anglo-américaine de Toussaint-Louverture

Debien, Gabriel, et P. Pluchon, Un plan d'invasion de la Jamaïque en 1799 et la politique anglo-américaine de Toussaint-Louverture, Revue de la Société haïtienne d'histoire, de géographie et de géologie, Volume 36, no 119, Juillet 1978.

Premiers paragraphes:
Le projet d'envahir la Jamaïque en 1799 est presque inconnu. Nous n'avons pas entrepris de recherches sur son origine. Nous distinguons donc mal qu'il vient du Directoire ou de Roume, sont agent particulier à Saint-Domingue, ni à quel moment il remonte. En tous cas, Roume, s'il se fait l'écho de lointains ordres du Directoire parait avoir agi de sa propre initiative, et c'est de Saint-Domingue que l'expédition devait partir. Aujourd'hui pour nous, il suffit.

On peut penser qu'on aura voulu profiter des suites de l'insurrection des esclaves réfugiés dans les Montagnes Bleues, dans l'Est de la Jamaïque. Elle venait à peine d'être jugulée, non sans mal. Ce projetet ses préparatifs sont à peine un épisode de l'histoire de la Révolution à Saint-Domingue et les évènements qui suivirent en provoquèrent rapidement l'oubli. Il n'en marque pas moins un côté très important des dernières années de notre ancienne colonie. C'est donc de Saint-Domingue et de la Jamaïque que nous le suivrons, non comme un moment de la politique extérieure du Directoire. Ce chapître de l'histoire coloniale a le grand intérêt de nous préciser quelle fut la politique anglaise et américaine de Toussaint Louverture et en même temps de nous apprendre comment Bonaparte dès le début du Consular a pu se rendre compte combien le gouverneur de Saint-Domingue qui à ses yeux était avant tout un général français, avait parti lié avec l'Angleterre et avec l'Amérique. Il pensait être devant une étape capitale de l'ascension de Toussaint Louverture vers la toute-puissance et vers l'indépendance.

Roughly Google translated:
The plan to invade Jamaica in 1799 is almost unknown. We have not undertaken research on its origin. We distinguish evil that comes from the Directorate or Roume are special agent in Saint-Domingue, nor when it goes up. In any case, Roume, if distant echoes of the Directorate orders appears to have acted on his own initiative, and it is from Saint-Domingue that the expedition had to leave. Today for us it is enough.

Presumably we will have wanted to take advantage of the consequences of the uprising of slaves refugees in the Blue Mountains in the east of Jamaica. She had just been brought under control, not without difficulty. This plat and its preparation are just one episode in the history of the revolution in Santo Domingo and the events that followed quickly provoked oblivion. It does not mark a less important side of the last years of our former colony. So Saint-Domingue and Jamaica that we will follow, not as a time of the foreign policy of the Directorate. This chapter of colonial history has the great interest we clarify what was the British and American policy of Toussaint Louverture and at the same time learn how Bonaparte early in the Consular was able to realize how the governor of Saint-Domingue which in his eyes was primarily a French general, was party linked with England and America. He thought he was at a crucial stage of the ascent of Toussaint Louverture to absolute power and to independence.

Nuevo Enfoque Sobre el Desarrollo Político de Puerto Rico

Sánchez Tarniella, Andrés, Nuevo enfoque sobre el desarrollo político de Puerto Rico, 3ra Edición, Río Piedras, PR: Ediciones Bayoán, 1972.

Reseñada en Caribbean Studies © 1972.

De la cubierta:
En este libro se intenta una nueva actitud hacia la representación del proceso político, que estima el autor vale también para la historia toda del país. Consiste la misma en ir a la auténtica trayectoria de pueblo libre. Supone ello pulsar unas notas y rastrear unas tendencias que con ser las mas elocuentes huellas de nuestra vida de pueblo, han quedado desplazadas por una presentación de los hechos del pasado conforme a la imagen oficial. Es, de acuerdo con el autor, un intento por empezar a descolonizarnos descubriendo la legítima dimensión de nuestro pasado. Este esfuerzo que así se inicia en un nivel puramente descriptivo, se atiende que debe tener consecuencias para la acción y puede darnos la idea por donde podemos empezar a diseñar un verdadero programa de liberación, objetivo de toda buena política y de toda sana pedagogía.

7 Años con Muñoz Marín 1938-1945, (Diario íntimo de un Taquígrafo)

Córdova, Olivio de Lieban, 7 años con Muñoz Marín 1938-1945 (Diario íntimo de un Taquígrafo), Prólogo del Lcdo. Armando A. Miranda, San Juan: Editorial Esther, 1945.

In 1938, Muñoz Marín helped create the Popular Democratic Party of Puerto Rico (Partido Popular Democratico, or PPD). The party committed to helping the jíbaros, regardless of their political beliefs, by promoting a minimum wage, initiatives to provide food and water, cooperatives to work with agriculture, and the creation of more industrial alternatives.[36] Muñoz Marín concentrated his political campaigning in the rural areas of Puerto Rico. He attacked the then common practice of paying off rural farm workers to influence their vote, insisting that they "lend" their vote for only one election. The party's first rally attracted solid participation, which surprised the other parties..

Acclimatization in the Andes

Monge, Carlos, Acclimatization in the Andes: historical confirmation of climatic aggression in the development of Andean man, Baltimore: The Johns Hopkins Press, 1948. (fragile)

Available as an American Council of Learned Societies eBook.

See also Andean Biology in Peru: Scientific Styles on the Periphery.

From the Foreword, by Isaiah Bowman:
Out of experimental data that have not yet been published and in the light of relevant historical material, Dr. Monge has drawn certain conclusions about biological effects in high altitudes. The whole is presented as a preliminary study to be followed by a series of scientific papers. Three themes are interwoven in this fascinating account of altitude effects on man. They are, (1) the conclusions drawn from the experimental work of the Institute of Andean Biology, of which Dr. Monge is director; (2) the evidence in the chronicles of early Peru that the fair treatment of natives was one of the earliest policy conceptions of Inca government; and (3) successive colonial and republican governments of Peru, over a long period of time, have largely neglected problems of human conservation that arise among the highland population.

O Mundo que o Português Criou

Freyre, Gilberto, O Mundo que o Português Criou, 1941?. [Este livro foi composto e impresso nas oficinas da Empresa Graphica da “Revista dos Tribunaes”, á rua Conde de Sarzedas, 38, São Paulo, para Livraria José Olympio Editora, Rio, em dezembro de 1940. ]

Minha nota:
Este livro é velho e decrépito, sem uma tampa frontal. Tem rabiscos em Português, mas eu achei inserido nele um artigo de jornal escrito por Cyro T. de Pádua que analisa o livro (página 4 de O Estado de S. Paulo, 23/1/41).

This book is old and decrepit, lacking a front cover. It has scribblings in Portuguese, but I found inserted in it a newspaper article which reviews the book by Cyro T. de Padua (page 4 of O Estado de S. Paulo, 23/1/41)

Página 4 de O Estado de S. Paulo (23/1/41):
Gilberto Freyre é incansavel. Considerado o maior sociologo brasileiro, tendo produzido tres livros dos mais sérios da nossa reduzida literatura de pesquisas sociologicas “Casa Grande e Senzala”, “Nordeste”, e “Sobrados e Mocambos”, prosegue, entretanto, infatigavelmente, nos seus trabalhos. Agora acaba de nos dar “O Mundo que o Português Criou” editado pela Livraria José Olympio, do Rio, como o volumen 28 da “Coleção Documentos Brasileiros", que inicialmente elle mesmo dirigiu e presentemente orientada por Octavio Tarquinio de Souza.
O prefacio de Antonio Sergio, que ocupa cerca de 20 paginas me mostrou novas perspectivas sobre certos aspectos da historia economica de Portugal e nos auxilia muito na comprehensão do que escreve Gilberto Freyre. E’ um prefacio cheio de idéias novas e algumas verdadeiramente ineditas para mim. Vou transcrever apenas um pequeno trecho, por signal que annotação no pé das paginas 28 e 29, em que o ensaista portugués se refere ao fado, musica e canto que sempre detestei en com razão como veremos: “As origens do fado deverão buscar-se ao que, ao que nos dizem os doutos, entre os escravos do Brasil. Do fado-musica o antecesor directo é o lundum – afro-brasileiro – importado em Portugal pelos fins do seculo XVIII; o fado-dança surgiu no Brasil nos principios do XIX, e veiu para Lisboa quando a corte regressou do Rio, em 1821. ..."...

Centenary History of the East Indians in British Guiana: 1838-1938

Ruhomon, Peter, Centenary History of the East Indians in British Guiana: 1838-1938, Georgetown Demerara: Daily Chronicle, 1947.

The Ruhomons were born at Plantation Albion. Peter, born on August 2, 1873, is considered the first Indian intellectual in British Guiana. (…) Joseph’s brother, Peter Ruhomon, born in 1880, was a journalist. He wrote under the pseudonym “the Pandit” and he was a leading light in the Susamachar [Wesleyan] East Indian Young Men’s Society in the 1920s and 1930s. Peter Ruhomon was an intellectual in his own right and his book the Centenary History of the East Indian in British Guiana (1947), reprinted by the East Indians 150th Anniversary Committee, offers a wealth of information about the progress of Indians in colonial Guiana.

[Peter] Ruhomon grew up in, and became an integral part of, that period in our history that saw the flowering of East Indian intellectualism. He witnessed the formation of a number of organisations to oversee the welfare of East Indians, such as the British Guiana East Indian Association in1916, initiated by his elder brother Joseph; The East Indian Young Men,s Society (EIYMS) in 1919; and The Balak Sahaita Mandalee (child welfare society) in 1936. Just as important were the East Indian Cricket Club (1914); The Corentyne Literary and Debating Society (1937); and The British Guiana Dramatic Society. INDIAN OPINION, the official organ of The British Guiana East Indians Association, became the main tool of Indian intellectualism. And Ruhomon made good use of this outlet for his opinions.

Foreword to Sugar and Society in the Caribbean (separata)

Mintz, Sidney W., Foreword reprinted from Guerra y Sanchez, R., Sugar and Society in the Caribbean, Caribbean Series 7, Yale University Press, New Haven, 1964, pp. xi-xiiv.

First four sentences:
In this book about men and sugar, Dr. Ramiro Guerra recounts a history. His story is laid in the Caribbean islands – islands which, for most of us, did not even exist a decade ago. Dr. Guerra purports to demonstrate that in these islands men and sugar were long ago drawn into remarkably patterned relationships, and that all of these relationships have developed along some parallel course or trajectory. This is history – social, political, and economic history – and it aspires to be generalizing; its author means to locate sociological regularities within bodies of historical fact.

Fernández-Pardo, Carlos A., Frantz Fanón, Buenos Aires: Editorial Galerna, 1971.

De la portada:
Este trabajo que ofrecemos al lector se reconoce como producto fiel de una lectura no europea de la obra fanoniana, y como un intento de sistematización del conjunto de problemas que en vida, en su corta vida sometida a las exigencias de la eficacia revolucionaria, Fanón mismo no llegó a ordenar de manera definitiva.

The Puerto Rico Problem

Lockett, Edward B., The Puerto Rico Problem, New York: Exposition Press, 1964.

From the author’s Preface:
The Puerto Rico Problem was prepared with the intent of creating an informal collateral reading source dealing frankly and accurately , if discursively, with Puerto Rican migration to the United States mainland, against the background of the island’s genetic, social, economic, and governmental history. On that foundation this study appraises the economic and social impact of island natives’ movement to the mainland, its perils for mainland society and the economy, and explores prospects for reducing the migration volume and easing its mainland impact.
