Item description for The Emancipation of South America by Bartolome Mitre...

In English

Bartolome Mitre, in spite of his manifold occupations as politician and statesman, journalist and writer, worked strenuously the biography and significance of general Jos de San Martin. His preface is dated at the jail in Lujan in March 1875, during his incarceration and trial accused of having led a rebellion against the national government. As a matter of fact the three volumes long final version appeared in 1887, an amplification and completion of the original text published in the "La Nacin" newspaper ob Buenos Aires twelve years before.

Mitre expected this work to be, along with his writings about Manuel Belgrano published some years before, the basis of a clear vision on the origins of Argentina, supported by a solid foundation of documents and a serious and scientific methodology.

In 1890, before travelling to Europe, general Bartolom Mitre asked William Pilling to publish in London an English translation of his "History of San Martin", authorising the translator to condense the text, if necessary.

William Pillings book is an accurate expression of the sense and content of the work by Mitre, and constitutes an excellent contribution to the historiography of the independentist revolution in Latin America.

This edition is based upon the original Pilling English version, a successful sinthesis of this classic argentine historiographic text.

More About Bartolome Mitre

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Bartolome Mitre (1821-1906). Argentina. Nacio en Buenos Aires y muy joven se enfrento con sus escritos al dictador Juan Manuel de Rosas. Tras exiliarse en Chile, Bolivia y Peru, Mitre regreso a Argentina en 1852 y participo en el derrocamiento de Rosas. En 1853 fue nombrado ministro de Guerra del gobierno provincial de Buenos Aires, y se opuso al plan de Urquiza que pretendia que la provincia se integrase en la Republica Argentina. En 1859, las tropas de Mitre fueron derrotadas por Urquiza en la batalla de Cepeda, y Buenos Aires se integro en la federacion. Mitre fue nombrado gobernador de la provincia de Buenos Aires en 1860 y logro derrotar a Urquiza en la batalla de Pavon (1861). En 1862 fue elegido presidente de la Republica. Durante su presidencia, Argentina, aliada con Brasil y Uruguay contra Paraguay, participo en la guerra de la Triple Alianza (1865-1870). En 1868 fue derrotado en las elecciones presidenciales por Domingo Faustino Sarmiento. Mitre fundo entonces en Buenos Aires el periodico La Nacion, en 1870. Escribio poemas y obras historicas, y tradujo a autores clasicos. Su carta-prefacio en prosa motivada por una diatriba de Domingo F. Sarmiento es una defensa de la poesia que muestra el poder y la influencia de esta en distintas civilizaciones. Su unica novela, Soledad (1847), puede ser inscrita en el movimiento romantico.

Bartolome Mitre was born in 1821 and died in 1906.
