In this revised version of his doctoral thesis, Tandeter examines the resurgence of silver production from the famous silver mines of Potosi (Bolivia) between the 1730s and the 1790s, shedding light not only on the changes which explain this upturn, but also on the traditional structures that survived through the entire colonial period. Translated from the Spanish-language edition of 1992, published simultaneously in Cusco (Peru) and in Buenos Aires.
