About

McGillivray’s commitment to comparative studies and micro-history combined with her gravitation toward early XXth century developments—war, boom, and bust at the global level and nationalism, populism, and revolution at the local level—motivated her book, “Blazing Cane: Sugar Communities, Class, and State-Formation in Cuba, 1868-1958” (Duke Univ, 2009) and her new research on Brazil.
