     Secondary Cities of Argentina: The Social History of Corrientes, Salta, and Mendoza, 1850-1910
Publisher: Stanford University Press
Author(s): James Scobie

This study of three Argentine provincial capitals introduces a new concept in Latin American urban studies: the historical role of secondary cities, settlements large enough to possess all the elements commonly associated with urban areas and yet too small to figure among a country's major cities.

The principal contribution of the book is to explain how and why smaller cities grew. What determined and shaped their growth? How did local inhabitants, and especially the dominant social elites, react to internal and external influences? To what extent were they able to control growth? What relationships developed with the surrounding regions and the outside world?

The study shows that secondary cities linked rural economies and inhabitants with the outside world while insulating the traditional rural environment from the changing character of large urban centers. In this intermediate position, economic relationships and social structure changed slowly, and only in response to outside innovations such as railroads. Continuity within the secondary centers thus reinforced conservatism, accentuated the gap between the major cities and the rest of the country, and contributed to the resistance to change that characterizes much of Latin American today. The book is illustrated with photographs and maps.

     The 2009 Economic and Product Market Databook for Mendoza, Argentina
Publisher: ICON Group International, Inc.
Author(s): Icon Group International

In performing various economic analyses for its clients, I have occasionally been asked to investigate the market potential for various products and services in Argentina. The purpose of this study is to understand the density of demand within Argentina and the extent to which Mendoza might be used as a point of distribution within Latin America. From an economic perspective, however, Mendoza does not represent a population within rigid geographical boundaries, rather, it represents an area of dominant influence over markets in adjacent areas. This influence varies from one industry to another, but also from one period of time to another.

In what follows, I summarize the economic potential for Mendoza over the next five years for hundreds of industries, categories and products. The goal of this report is to report the real economic potential, or what an economist calls the latent demand, represented by Mendoza when defined as an area of dominant influence. The reader needs to realize that latent demand may or may not represent real sales. For many items, latent demand is clearly observable in sales, as in the case for food or housing items. Consider, however, the category "satellite launch vehicles". Clearly, there are no launch pads in Mendoza used by the space industry to launch satellites. However, the core benefit of the vehicles (e.g. telecommunications, etc.) is "consumed" by the area served by Mendoza. Without Mendoza, in other words, the market for satellite launch vehicles would be lower for the population in Argentina, Latin America, or the world in general. One needs to allocate, therefore, a portion of the worldwide economic demand for launch vehicles to both Latin America and Mendoza.

     Band Mobility and Leadership Among the Western Toba Hunter-Gatherers of Gran Chaco in Argentina (Mellen Studies in Anthropology, V. 7)
Publisher: Edwin Mellen Pr
Author(s): Marcela Mendoza

This work analyzes the mobility, settlement patterns and socio-political organization of the Western Toba bands of Northern Argentina from a classic anthropological perspective, based on ethnographic and historical research. The more specific and innovative contributions of the analysis are on the mapping and description of range sizes and patterns of mobility of bands around the 1930s; a description of the nature of Toba egalitarian leadership in relation to the social organization of bands; and the contextualization of ethnographic data within an historical framework.

     The Rule of Law in Nascent Democracies: Judicial Politics in Argentina
Publisher: Stanford University Press
Author(s): Rebecca Bill Chavez

This book explains how the rule of law emerges and how it survives in nascent democracies.

The question of how nascent democracies construct and fortify the rule of law is fundamentally about power. By focusing on judicial autonomy, a key component of the rule of law, this book demonstrates that the fragmentation of political power is a necessary condition for the rule of law. In particular, it shows how party competition sets the stage for independent courts.

Using case studies of Argentina at the national level and of two neighboring Argentine provinces, San Luis and Mendoza, this book also addresses patterns of power in the economic and societal realms. The distribution of economic resources among members of a divided elite fosters competitive politics and is therefore one path to the requisite political fragmentation. Where institutional power and economic power converge, a reform coalition of civil society actors can overcome monopolies in the political realm.

     Mendoza, Argentina Travel Guide - What To See & Do In 2012
Publisher:
Author(s): Kenneth Humphrey


Kindle version of our illustrated travel guide will take you to Mendoza, Argentina.

Mendoza is a city in western Argentina, in the desert Cuyo region. Mendoza is the center of the Argentinian wine industry, for which it is world renowned. It is also near the Aconcagua, the highest mountain outside of the Himalayas. Mendoza is the capital of the province of Mendoza.

Although it is situated in an extremely dry desert region, Mendoza has an extensive artificial irrigation system, which allows for greenery throughout the city as well as the growth of the grapes used to make its famous wines. Most streets have irrigation channels on either side, with bridges for pedestrian and vehicular traffic. These are periodically flooded with water diverted from the river. The trees and the wide avenues give the city a beautiful ambience, a change from much of the bare feel of many Argentine cities.

Finding Internet access when out and about can be problematic so carry your mobile guidebook in the palm of your hand. We include a fully linked Table of Contents and internally to access context-specific information quickly and easily when offline. Many web links are included as well for additional information.

     Wine Guide to Argentina and Chile (South America)
Publisher: Approach Guides
Author(s): David Raezer, Jennifer Raezer, Approach Guides

The wine scenes in Argentina and Chile are red hot, as quality is on the rise and the range of wines available is seemingly ever-expanding. This guide has been written with the traveler in mind; we have designed a comprehensive region-by-region review of the wines of Argentina and Chile, so no matter where you are, you will know just what to order.

For each region, we lay out the primary red and white grape varieties, the flavor profiles each variety typically exhibits, the denominations in which these grapes reach their highest expression, and vintage ratings. Since value is a focus, we highlight the regions where you are most likely to find quality wine at good prices. Rather than seek to tell you what specific bottle of wine to order, we give guidance as to how to approach ordering the most appropriate wine for the region. When appropriate, we have let our opinions be known. Ease of reference and accessibility have led us to employ a bullet-point based format.

Please note: As grape varieties can be the same across multiple regions, there is some repetition among regions. This is intentional and meant to provide a more useful guide for travelers.

Using our Guide During Your Trip
Quickly scan recommended wines and choose your next bottle with confidence. Our Approach Guide to the Wines of Chile and Argentina uses a bullet-point based format that enables you to quickly scan wine lists and find great wines at great prices. We mark all recommended grapes and regions with an asterisk (*).

We hope you enjoy what we believe is a totally unique travel guide to some of the best in South American wines.

     The Vineyard at the End of the World: Maverick Winemakers and the Rebirth of Malbec
Publisher: W. W. Norton & Company
Author(s): Ian Mount

"The improbable triumph of the humble Malbec?the Seabiscuit of grapes." ?Benjamin Wallace, author of The Billionaire's Vinegar

For generations, Argentine wine was famously bad?�oxidized, unpalatable, and often mixed with a low-class French grape called Malbec. But then in 2001, a Cabernet Sauvignon / Malbec blend beat all contenders in a blind taste test featuring Napa and Bordeaux?s finest. Today, Argentina and its signature wine are on the tip of every smart traveler?s tongue. How did this happen?

The Vineyard at the End of the World tells the fascinating, four-hundred-year history of how a wine mecca arose in the high Andean desert. Profiling the outlandish figures who fueled the Malbec revolution?including celebrity enologist Michel Rolland, acclaimed American winemaker Paul Hobbs, and the Mondavi-esque Catena family?Ian Mount describes in colorful detail the nefarious scams, brilliant business innovations, and backroom politics that put Malbec on the map.
