Rebirth of the Paraguayan Republic

Harris Gaylord Warren (1906-1988) was professor of history at Miami University of Ohio.
“A superb account of a nation almost literally climbing from the ashes. Quite simply, this is the first academic treatment of the era, because of the destruction, theft, 'misplacement' and 'protection' of much of the documentary material. . . . only one who truly understands the Paraguayan past and has worked in it for decades would even attempt the task. . . . An exceptional book.”—The Americas

“Gaylord Warren's new book is a detailed, descriptive survey of Paraguay during the years when a new liberal order of capitalist democracy was being consolidated in the country under the guidance of a nascent Colorado party. . . . [It] enriches our understanding of Paraguay's late nineteenth-century political economy.”—American Historical Review

“Not only was this work a joy to read; it is indispensable to any student of Paraguay and the Río de la Plata. The author deserves our thanks for this excellent and well-researched book.”—Hispanic American Historical Review

“The book is well written, superbly documented, and fills an important gap in Latin American history. It should be required reading for those interested in Latin American and Paraguayan history.”—Choice

This period of rebirth saw the formal organization of Paraguay's major political parties, the Colorados and the Liberals, and the dominance of the Colorados until the Liberal revolution of 1904.
