À paraître (juin 2020) A Silver River in a Silver World. Dutch Trade in the Rio de la Plata, 1648–1678 de David Freeman aux Cambridge University Press, coll. "Cambridge Latin American Studies", 2020, 238 p. ISBN : 9781108417495 Prix : 99,99 $ (existe aussi en version électronique).

"Drawing on a wide and rich array of sources, this book explores the nature and extent of Dutch trade and commerce in the Río de la Plata during three decades of the least-studied century (1650–1750) of Spain’s rule in the Americas. In doing so, it raises important questions about trade in colonial South America and how it was impacted by the Dutch, suggesting that these transactions were carried out within the confines of the law, contradicting common beliefs among scholars that this trading was not regulated. The book contributes to a growing literature on contraband trade, administration, networks, and corruption while challenging narratives of exclusively Spanish influence on the Americas."
