Appeared in Choice on 1985-09:
This is an impressive empirical study of the development of governmental finances in Ecuador and of regional elites' struggles over them. The research is solidly based on primary sources, and the book is an unrivaled source of fiscal data for the period covered. The book is very much about Ecuador; although the author reinterprets the character of the Ecuadorian liberal period (1895-1925), she does not cast her work in comparative terms nor does she relate her findings to broader conceptions of political and economic change. Within its terms, the book is an extremely valuable contribution and is highly recommended for all research libraries serving graduate and advanced undergraduate programs in Latin American history, politics, and economics. Maps, tables (including extensive appendixes), index, and excellent bibliography.-F.S. Weaver, Hampshire College
