The Mulatto Republic

This chapter argues that as the Dominican Republic was incorporated into the United States’ sphere of economic influence, an important political transformation took place that resulted in excluding the region’s peasant masses. In its place, a new elite emerged to take the reigns of political power. This process essentially created the “gavillero,” which represented the disenfranchisement of peasants in favor of new groups who were important to a region now oriented around sugar production.
