By Ed. C. De Jesus (Editor)

Tobacco Monopoly analyzes the mechanics of one of the most durable of Spanish colonial innovations and explores the effects it had on the lives of the indigenous population. By focusing on the development of the enterprise in the Cagayan Valley, where tobacco played an important part in the economy and in the society, the book combines institutional and regional history. Tobacco Monopoly shows how this bureaucratic enterprise, in operation for nearly a hundred years, first served and later undermined the economic and political objectives of the colonial government.
