Abstract

CUCCHI, Laura. ARGENTINE POLITICAL VIOLENCE DURING STATE FORMATION (1862-1880) AN INTERPRETATIVE ESSAY. Almanack [online]. 2019, n.23, pp.121-150.  Epub Dec 13, 2019. ISSN 2236-4633.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/2236-463320192306.

Traditionally, Argentine historiography has considered the many uprisings that took place in Argentina during the second half of the nineteenth century to be disruptive actions that hampered the institutionalization of the political system outlined in the Constitution. Historians understood these forms of political mobilization as a part of minor power struggles between elites who, through their behavior, perpetuated political instability and delayed state consolidation. Recent empirical, local studies offer a different view of political violence in Argentina during state formation. This article reviews those studies and proposes a new global interpretation of the concept and practice of violence for the period between national unification (1862) and the consolidation of the state (1880).

Keywords : Political History; 19th Century; State formation; violence; Historiography of Argentina.
