Ricardo D. Salvatore is Professor of Modern History at Universidad Torcuato di Tella in Buenos Aires. He is coeditor of "Crime and Punishment in Latin America: Law and Society since Late Colonial Times" and "Close Encounters of Empire: Writing the Cultural History of U.S."-"Latin American Relations, "both published by Duke University Press.


"Meticulously researched in official correspondence, military records, judicial archives, political poetry, and other popular narratives, "Wandering Paysanos" contributes importantly to interdisciplinary discussions of modern state formation and rural political and social consciousness. Few students of the Latin American past can match Salvatore in combining skillful analysis of political, social, and economic relations with an ability to deconstruct and interpret texts. This volume redeems the promise of Latin American subaltern studies."--Gilbert M. Joseph, Yale University
