Juan Bautista Alberdi. Biografía del general Don Manuel Bulnes, presidente de la República de Chile. Santiago, Chile: Imprenta Chilena, 1846.


Alberdi (1810-1884) lived in exile in Chile and Europe for most of his life. The finest political thinker of his day, he strongly influenced the writing of the 1853 Argentine constitution. His work, Bases y puntos de partida para la organización política de la República Argentina ("Bases and starting points for the political organization of the Argentine Republic") strongly supported European immigration and a federalist constitution.
