Latin American History and Historians in the Nineteenth Century

Study of history written in 19th century by Latin Americans, concentrating on five countries--Mexico, Peru, Chile, Argentina, and Brazil--and focusing on approximately 30 prominent historians. Considers the self-training of historians, thematic content of their writings, methodology, philosophies of history, goals or objectives, interpretations, cooperation between historians, and bias, particularly with regard to those who played active roles in politics. Historians of the period had much to say in their analyses of political events, the formation of society, the structure of government and economic trends that instructed their contemporaries and contributed to the understanding of their times. Delineation of their role in this process gives better appreciation of the evolution of social and ideological trends, such as nationalism and Indianism, and can contribute to understanding of present-day Latin America.
