Declarations of Independence of the United States and the Spanish American Nations: Towards a Comparative Analysis


  • Andrey A. Iserov

    () (National Research University Higher School of Economics)


This research is an attempt of an outline of the relevant lines of comparison between the declarations of independence of the United States and Spanish American nations. For the first time in historiography the exhaustive list of Spanish American declarations of independence is compiled. The questions risen by this attempted comparison lead to a reconsideration of the main problems of the New World independence movements and in the final account, to the discussion of a nature of the British and the Spanish colonial societies in Americas, and thus do not have clear and final answers.
