LOSADA, Leandro. The Marriage Market of Traditional Argentinean Families, 1900-1940: Some Aspects and Trends. Secuencia [online]. 2012, n.82, pp.127-151. ISSN 0186-0348.
The article studies the marriage market of traditional Argentinean families between 1900 and 1940 on the basis of a study of 550 marriages and the analysis of their social and cultural patterns. The period chosen includes the florescence of these families in Argentinean society (approximately between 1900 and the middle of the 1910s) as well as the are of time during which they declined (the 1920s and 1930s). The aim is to explore the link between marriage patterns and the rise and fall of the traditional elite, a problem that has so far been neglected by Argentinean historiography.
