Government and Society in Colonial Peru : The Intendant System 1784-1814 Hardback

Part of the History: Bloomsbury Academic Collections series

Description

This study of the structure of government and society in late colonial Peru is based upon detailed examination of the operation of the viceroyalty of the system of administration by intendants, partly in response to the demands for better provincial government expressed by the Tupac Amaru rebellion.

Fisher examines relations between the intendants and other groups of administrators, and brings out the revolutionary implications of their attempts to stimulate municipal life and government and assesses Peru's increasing political and administrative instability upon the application of the viceroyalty of the Constitution of Cadiz.
