Bibliographical noteFunding Information:
The research on which this article is based was made possible by a grant from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of Spain which allowed me to spend two months at the Departmento de Filosofía del Derecho, Moral y Política (II) at Universidad Complutense de Madrid. I owe many thanks to the faculty at Complutense, especially to Luis Méndez Francisco, Jesús Cordero Pando, Manuel Fernández del Riesgo and Graciano González Rodríguez-Arnaiz for their support as well as to Rufino Lancho Pedrazo at the Library. Thanks are also due to Richard Isomaki, Donald Strachan and Sarah Durling for their editorial assistance. I have benefited from the comments of Mike Macnair, Asher Salah and Claude Stuczynski and the help of Mario Sznajder and Alberto Spektorowski. This research was completed in the warm collegial environment the Harry S. Truman Institute for the Advancement of Peace of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and its Latin-American Unit. Earlier versions of this paper were presented at the Truman Institute, at the Department of History of Bar-Ilan University, and at the Jerusalem Seminar on the History of Political Thought. I am grateful for comments received on these occasions.
