In the late nineteenth century, the city saw a massive population boom and large-scale urban development. With these changes came rampant crime, a chaotic environment in the streets, and intense class conflict. In response, the state expanded institutions that were intended to bring about social order and control. Lila Caimari is an Independent Researcher at the National Scientific and Technical Research Council in Argentina, where she studies and teaches the history of crime, journalism, and urban culture.

About the Author Lila Caimari is an Independent Researcher at the National Scientific and Technical Research Council in Argentina, where she studies and teaches the history of crime, journalism, and urban culture.
Drawn with a virtuoso mix of conceptual innovation, archival revelation, and narrative inspiration, this map moves from the margins to the center. Life in that booming metropolis is reconstructed in all its challenges, intensities, and uncertainties. Methodologically astute and extraordinarily creative, this work makes productive use of a collection of sources that has been largely ignored by historians: the archives of the Buenos Aires police.
The questions Caimari raises about the relationship between the police, popular culture, and the construction of the social order are of vital importance well beyond the field of Argentine history.
