Abstract

A partir de las percepciones sociales de una ola de crimen ocurrida en Buenos Aires en las décadas de 1920 y 1930, este trabajo analiza los cambios tecnológicos que subyacen a la transformación de ciertas prácticas delictivas, particularmente el acceso a automóviles y armas automáticas. Asimismo, reconstruye la evolución de las geografías del temor al delito —del bajo fondo decimonónico al suburbio peligroso—. Por último, contrapone la figura moderna del "pistolero" de entreguerras a la del gaucho matrero y el cuchillero de las orillas de la ciudad. During the 1920s and 1930s, Buenos Aires society experienced a "crime wave". Drawing from this perception, this article analyzes the main technological changes underlying the evolution of illegal practices, with particular attention to the expansion of access to automobiles and automatic weapons. Furthermore, it follows transformations in the geography of crime, from the XIXth century notion of 'bajo fondo' to the emerging topic of the dangerous suburb. Finally, it analyzes the rather fashionable figure of the modern pistolero, as opposed to the traditional gaucho matrero and the knife brawling characters of the margins of Buenos Aires.
