VILA DE PRADO, Roberto. Popular revolutionary nationalism in Bolivia (Ideological formations and transformations, 1930 - 1955).Translated byJeremy Jordan. Rev. humanid. cienc. soc. (St. Cruz Sierra) [online]. 2006, vol.2Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1819-0545.
This article analyses the processes of construction of the Bolivian popular revolutionary nationalist thought since the Chaco war until the first phase of the Movimiento Nacionalista Revolucionario (MNR) government. After placing this school of thought in the Bolivian ideological spectrum of the time, the relationships between the crisis of hegemony provoked by the Chaco war and the transformation of the discursive formations are studied. The central part of this paper contains an analysis of the discourses elaborated by the main ideologues of the movement. Finally, keeping in mind that they were militants and propagandists dedicated to an intense proselytism (through articles in newspapers and magazines, pamphlets and manifestos), next to a list of books published along their lives, another list of abridged books edited by relatives and friends after the passing away of the authors is added.
