contemporary Latin America. It does so considering three issues. First, the importance of industrialization in
sustaining high rates of economic growth leading to high levels of income per capita. Second, the long-standing
debate in global historiography regarding the successes and failures of industrial policy: markets vs. states.
Lastly, Latin America´s industrial trajectory through the lenses of four historiographical tendencies, and the
ways in which each of the four original papers relate to the extant literature, and contribute to enhancing our
understanding of one of the most important economic transformations in the history of the region.
