La pervivencia de la República posible en los territorios nacionales Poder y ciudadanía en Río Negro [The Survival of the ‘Possible Republic’ in National Territories. Power and Citizenship in Río Negro] Martha Ruffini isbn 978-987-558-120-3 2007 | 280 p. | 420 g $ 36 | usd 9,61
This book explores the process of national state formation in Argentina through the lens of the special relationship between the government and each of the ten territorial states that later comprised the country. Framed by a conservative order, these territorial states’ creation is closely linked with the national state, which implemented a sort of controlled republicanism that the author describes as “republicanismo tutelado”. Political rights restriction and coercion in the exercise of power stand out as the most visible signs of survival of Juan Bautista Alberdi’s “possible Republic”, which remained alive until the Peronist period, when most national territories were integrated into the country’s political structure as actual provinces.

In the late-19th Century, different sectors began demanding from Argentina’s government a specialized school system and an agricultural curriculum in rural primary schools. This book intends to explore those public policies which resulted in the creation of an agricultural school system in the Pampas region, addressing the relationship between government, education, and rural society from 1897 to 1955, when the country reached a turning point in terms of the national and popular Peronist experience. The author seeks to show an interaction between education history and socio-economic history of rural areas, which might lead to a richer, more complex examination of the subject, offering some new core issues to discuss.

This book describes the intellectual and political careers of a group of reformist, leftwing academics during the interwar period in Argentina. Led by Argentine philosopher Alejandro Korn, Dominican philologist Pedro Henríquez Ureña, and Argentine lawyer and politician Alfredo Palacios, these Latin American thinkers participated in student struggles for University Reform in 1918, while they also drove a great number of initiatives for university management and cultural events in the 1920s and 30s. In addition, the author provides a detailed account of their intellectual relationships with students and other reformist colleagues.
