A classic study of an export economy... It deals with an important chapter in Anglo Latin American economic relations, the implications of which extend far beyond the narrow confines of the subject itself. HAROLD BLAKEMORE, BRITISH BOOK NEWS His contribution is of fundamental importance... of great value to the student of 19th-century monopolies, to our knowledge of the financing and administration of a major commmodity in international trade, and to the development of greater realism in the study of the relationship between foreign business and the national government. D.C.M. PLATT, TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT Required reading for all students of the concept of underdevelopment in Latin America and of the relationship between satellite and developed metropolitan countries. ROBERT GREENHILL, BUSINESS HISTORY The British government and economy may well waste its North Sea oil assets in the way Peru wasted its guano... This is a very good monograph and should give pause for thought. F.M.L. THOMPSON, ECONOMIC HIST REVIEW
