Up until recently, historians viewed indigenous communities in colonial Spanish America as isolated and insulated from the marketplace, except when forced to provide goods or services to their Spanish overlords. Over the past two decades, economic historians have shattered this image, instead constructing a complex representation of the colonial economy and indigenous participation in it during the time. "Mercados indígenas en México, Chile y Argentina (siglos XVIII - XIX)" examines this more accurate representation through six essays. Writers include: Dr. Jorge Silva Riquer, Dra. Margarita Menegus Bornemann, Dr. Antonio Escobar Ohmstede, Dra. Rosalina Ríos Zúñiga, Dr. Jorge Pinto Rodríguez and Dra. Silvia Palomeque.
