 About the Book 

Camacho traces the development of Jose Martis ideas about progress, the market, and the educational reforms carried out by liberal governments in Central America, Argentina and the United States at the end of the 19th century. Unlike previous workMoreCamacho traces the development of Jose Martis ideas about progress, the market, and the educational reforms carried out by liberal governments in Central America, Argentina and the United States at the end of the 19th century. Unlike previous work in the area that tends to focus on Martis famous essay Our America, Camacho shows his support of laws and military acts that were very detrimental to the Indians during this time. The book also sheds light on Martis ideas about social-evolution and race, discourses that were frequently used by the cultural elites to justify their acts.
