Description

Sarmiento (1811-1888) was an influential figure in Argentina in the nineteenth century. His criticism of the government led to his exile in Chile, though he later became president of Argentina. He was in favour of centralised authority in Argentina, unlike Juan Facundo Quiroga (1788-1835), who was a federalist, and Sarmiento made use of Quiroga as a basis for his discussion of Argentinian social and political issues.
