The Late Spanish Translation of The Federalist Papers and the concept of Federalism in Argentina at the time

Rebeca Viguera-Ruiz


Throughout the second half of the 19th century a process took place in Latin America in order to recover the original concept of federalism for the first time mentioned in the United States at the end of 18th century.
