MORALES MORENO, Humberto. Los franceses en México: 1890-1910. Nueva revisión histórica (agentes comerciales, residentes e imperialismo informal). Sig. his [online]. 2007, vol.9, n.17, pp.174-223. ISSN 1665-4420.

In this paper we analyse data on 523 commercial french agents established in Mexico that were registered in the “Indicateur General de l’Industrie et du Commerce Francais pour l’exportation et l’importation”, published in Paris since 1892 by Engineer and Bussinessman F. Bianconi. Two consular reports from 1892-1893 were filed and secured by descendants of Honorary Consul of the French Legation in Puebla. One of the main topics discussed in this paper is the fact that “Free-Trade Imperialism” by French Bussinessmen was the result of regional and national capital accumulation and social and political networks of these residents inside Mexico, than an active foreign french imperialist policy as well.

Keywords : franceses en México; imperialismo de libre comercio; agentes comerciales; Ciudad de México; Puebla.
