Abstract

Spanish Abstract: En este artículo examino la génesis e importancia del estado desarrollista para nuestro estudio del periodo de la descolonización y, de forma más general, para nuestro entendimiento de la historia del orden global. Tomando como punto de partida la historia – mucho más temprana – de la experiencia latinoamericana con el colonialismo europeo, junto con los retos que trajo consigo su independencia, demuestro que el estado desarrollista que surgió en la región durante este tiempo vino a definir los límites de lo pensable y lo posible para el resto del mundo postcolonial.

English Abstract: In this article I examine the genesis and importance of the developmental state for our thinking about the period of decolonization and, more generally, the history of the global order. Using Latin America’s much earlier experience of European colonialism, together with the challenges later posed to this region by independence, I demonstrate how the developmental state that emerged there gradually came to define the outer limits of what was thinkable and doable in the rest of the decolonizing world.
