Travesía. Revista de historia económica y social, biannual publication, was born in 1998 of a confluence of a group of researchers who were willing to sustain a publication about the region's economic history with academic excellence. It was agreed upon that the history, as a means of knowledge, should not tie itself to any orthodoxy or theoretical principles or normative methodologies that were exclusionary; and that the processes and economic institutions could not be tackled without taking into account the inextricable relations between the economic vicissitudes and the social, political and cultural vicissitudes, in Carlo Cipolla's words. For that reason, Travesía accepts a plurality of points of view about economic and social regional processes in Latin America, as well as those referring to general problems in the disciplines that are concerned with a socio-historical analysis.
