In the first part of this book, the author examines the “criminality issue” and its many features in Argentina until the 1940s. She focuses on the urban underworld and its main players, on controversies over Italian immigration, and on medical and legal assessment of Italian immigrants. In the second part of the book, she explores some initiatives aimed at addressing the population “quality” and “quantity” issues from the inside. This work intends to bridge the gap between “gringos” and Indians, two of the groups that were most seriously marginalized by power elites in Argentina over the discussed period.

This extraordinary study deals with a complex issue –the history of the so-called “Gran Argentina”, an entity which was intended to comprise the former territories of the Viceroyalty of Rio de la Plata. The author’s analysis is nurtured by a wide range of perspectives, from diplomatic history to legal, intellectual, and cultural approaches. He focuses on the construction of Argentina’s national imaginary on the basis of territorial definition and boundary demarcation, while he also examines the intellectual origins of nationalism in Argentina through the works of diplomat Vicente Quesada (1830-1913). In his major contribution to the study of this process in Argentina, the author proves that there is a hidden division between territorial and “revisionist” nationalism, which has had an impact on the way both have spread and been later adopted by their intellectual heirs, mainly in Argentina’s liberal tradition.
