Hands for the coffee: migrants and western Venezuela's coffee production, 1870-1930

Auteur :
PRICE, M.

Description :
The spread of coffee production triggered complex patterns of human migration. Andean peasants and others from Colombia spontaneously colonized extensive areas of the mid-slopes suitable for coffee production. These movements are analyzed through a systematic study of regional marriage records. The research underscores the ineffectiveness of government migration policies. Contrary to the dreams of Venezuela's liberal elite, the hands that built Andean coffee economy were not European.
