A treatise in historical sociology which traces the socioeconomic and political processes that accompanied the development of capitalism in Cuba, providing a backdrop against which Cuba's republican era (1898-1959) can be understood. The study discusses the various factions of the planter class, their competing ideological orientations, and the destructive consequences of their intra-class conflicts. The work tries to identify the principle social actors of the colonial period, such as the Spanish state officials, the peninsula merchants, the creole sugar planters, the slaves, and the indentured workers. It also tries to show how the specific economic and political interest of these groups defined them as distinct and antagonistic social classes.
