Google full text of this book:

This penetrating sociological study of the causes, consequences, and historical meaning of the civil wars in mid- and late-nineteenth century Chile argues that they were abortive bourgeois revolutions fought out among rival segments of Chile's dominant class. Indeed, it concludes that, in general, not only class but also intraclass struggles can be decisive historically, especially at transitional moments.

Originally published in 1984.

". . . Zeitlin has produced one of the most impressive case studies of Latin American development to appear in the past ten years. . . . should be required reading for anyone interested in comparative historical analysis, regardless of how they define their interests geographically."--Politics & Society

"[A] fascinating and provocative book. . . . The relationship between class contradictions in a revolutionary situation and the development of the state is carefully explored. . . . Zeitlin makes a major contribution to understanding the interaction of international and domestic forces. . . . He argues that it is the class relations within nations that shape the global relations between them and that determine how these global relations will affect their internal development. . . . Zeitlin's case is brilliantly argued."--Elizabeth Ferris, Journal of Politics
