Abstract

CASTRO C, Luis. THE CHILEAN STATE, GOVERNMENT AGENTS, AND THE EARLY ADMINISTRATIVE ORGANIZATION OF THE ANDEAN SPACE OF THE PROVINCE OF TARAPACÁ (1880-1930). Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2008, vol.40, n.2, pp.219-233. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562008000200009.

In the decade of the 1880s, once the territorial annexation of Tarapacá had been secured, Chile addressed its political and ad-ministrative reorganization. In this context, and based on datafound in the archives ofthe Regional Government of Tarapacá in Iquique and Santiago, this paper argües that the conjunction ofthe salitre exploiters' interests with the modernizing guidelines caused the Chilean State to become markedly distant between the 1880s and the 1930s, regarding the resources, population, and Andean space of Tarapacá. This resulted in a scarce presence of the official machinery in these matters, and the absence of a specific Chileanization policy.

Keywords : Andean space; administrative reorganization; difficulties in administrative practice; absence of Chileanization; the Aymaras.
