Exploratory Hypotheses: Chile, Peru, and Argentina

  • Alex Roberto HybelEmail author


The intent throughout this chapter is to derive a number of generalizations in the form of hypotheses by comparing the state-creation and democratization processes of Argentina, Chile, and Peru. A total of ten hypotheses are presented throughout the analysis to explain the conditions that facilitated or obstructed the processes of state creation and democratization in the three countries.
