Abstract

PIMENTA, João Paulo Garrido. War, Law and History: some Reflections upon the Ibero-American Independences and its Discourses. Almanack [online]. 2011, n.1, pp.28-33. ISSN 2236-4633.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/2236-463320110103.

The aim of this article is to discuss the connections between war, law and history as political tools in the Ibero-american independences. It is based on Clément Thibaud's analysis focused on Nueva Granada and Venezuela, but tries to expand the same argument to the history of Brazil.

Keywords : war; Spanish America; Independence; Brazilian Empire; national identity; historiography.
