Abstract

This article studies the conflictive establishment and derogation of a system of rotating distribution of work in the slaughtering operations of saltpeter, called "la redondilla". In the context of eventual contracting that continued with the destruction of the nineteenth-century port guilds, this rotating system imposed by the government and the shipping companies on the wharves of northern Chile, sank its roots in the same labor demand that it tried to contain: persistent propensity of day laborers and longshoremen to take charge of the sale of their work force, removing from the middle the agents who administered the hiring of the men required for such tasks. The result of this tension, culminated in the first effort of governmental deseventualización in the Chilean coasts, between 1922 and 1923.

Abstract

The scientific article discusses the geopolitical interests of the United States in the Baltic region. First of all, it is noted that the Baltic states are distinguished by their complex geopolitical character. The region in which the Baltic republics are located has become a proving ground for a dangerous confrontation between the USSR and the USA. After gaining independence, the Baltic republics headed towards the European Union. These republics were able to achieve more effective integration with European structures. First of all, two important facts testify to this. Since the Baltic republics in a short time were admitted to the membership of the European Union and NATO. This also shows that Western structures attached great importance to this region. Especially the USA had clear geopolitical imperatives in the region. Accordingly, all-round contacts were established in different directions.

Abstract

In 1905, the plaza and monument dedicated to Francisco Bolognesi and his companions who died in the Arica hill during the War of the Pacific (1879-1883) were inaugurated in Lima. Based on the role played by monuments and public spaces in Lima in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, during the delicate relations between Peru and Chile and the Peruvian intentions to strengthen a diplomatic union with Argentina, we will analyze the project to create them, its intrinsic material characteristics and the ceremony of its inaugurations; where the main guest of honor was the Argentine Roque Sáenz Peña.
