La Paz. 1876

La Paz. 1876
In ?Peace. 1876, Mauricio Tenorio Trillo explores the concept of peace and its implications in modern history, taking 1876 as the axis for its relative order and political stability. The author analyzes civil wars, dictatorships, elections and military regimes that occurred around 1876, but also the industrialization processes in the modern nation-states, exploring its philosophical, political, ethical and artistic connotations. Later he explores the idea of peace around 1876 as a political and pragmatical purgatory, kept through economic agreement, agreement between nations, technological development, imperialist measures, and scientific pacifism. Finally, Tenorio Trillo explains the way time, risk, distance, science and practicality were understood in the era of peace purgatory.
