PEREZ PINZON, Luis Rubén. Cinchona, Territory and Business Conflict. Santander 1878-1882. Mem. Soc. [online]. 2015, vol.19, n.39, pp.140-155. ISSN 0122-5197.

The article analyzes the recurring environmental conflict associated with the products derived from logging. It takes as reference the confrontations for the monopoly of the cinchonas in western santander and southern Bolivar, specifically from the perspective of the struggle between the federal and state political elites that took sides in the conflict for extraction starred by foreign executives allied to each of these sides during a time of transition between political regimes. This irregular war from 1878-1882 prevented each opponent to have full control of empty lands and the compliance of their contracts.

Keywords : war; cinchona; liberal; entrepreneurs.
