For the newly independent nations, the constitution, formation and consolidation of states will be a long-term process, with advances and setbacks, during much of the 19th century (1816-1880, approx.). This process will occur with great complexity in the political, economic and social structures and depending on each country.
Thus, the History of the construction of Latin American national states must be reviewed based on the ideological influences that came from Europe and the United States. These are capitals for the economic-social development and of the forces that disputed power in Latin America.
Another important factor was the delay of the industrial process in the economies of the region, and, therefore, the failure to consolidate a national middle class that could promote said process. What did take shape was the formation of oligarchic sectors - Creole and not - and liberal professionals (lawyers, doctors, professors), who joined the military groups in order to consolidate a force that would lead them to take power in the government. .
