Abstract/Description: This thesis analyzes artisans and especially the guilds trades in Guadalajara from 1791 to 1842. During the onset of commercial capitalism, the Mexican economy underwent a process of reorganization. Some scholars have argued that the artisan mode of production declined as new productive forms emerged. However, even though commercial capitalism brought changes to the established forms of production, the artisan system continued to function in an adapted manner through the nineteenth century and on into the twentieth century. Although Guadalajara's guilds were formally abolished with Independence, artisans persisted in traditional behaviors that encouraged the maintenance of an artisan culture, which with time took the place of guild regulations. Primary, this work is based on the statistical analysis of the 1791, 1821, and 1842 population censuses, complemented by municipal protocols.
