The final and precipitating factor was the confused political situation in Spain and Portugal caused by French invasion and occupation. 2. Compare and contrast the Brazilian move to independence with other Latin American independence movements. Because of political unrest and invasion in Portugal, the king of Portugal was forced to flee to Brazil in 1820.
In 1822, Brazil was cleared independent with a monarchy ruling. This contrasts from the rest of Latin America’s colonies as they fought protracted revolutions for independence. Ultimately each of these colonies became republics. 3.

6. How successful was reform at resolving the problems of race, class, and gender? Women, despite participation in the revolutions, gained little ground during the 19th century. They continued as wives and mothers under the authority of en; they could not vote or hold office. Lower-class women had more economic and personal freedom but otherwise shared in subordination.
Public education became more open to women to prepare them for more enlightened roles in the home. Most of the new nations legally ended the society of castes in which status depended on color and ethnicity; in reality, very little changed for natives and former slaves. Control of land, politics, and the economy was dominated by a small, white, Creole elite that displayed rigid social structures. 7. What was the nature of the economic boom of the period after 1870?

But it did not address the serious issues of inequitable distribution of land, the status of Indians, the problems of education, or the poverty of most of the population. Conservative centralists opposed liberal federalists; foreign commercial agents added additional complications.
Liberals during the early asses tried sweeping reforms, but they fell before a conservative reaction led by Antonio Lopez De Santa Ana. War with the United States ended in Mexican territory. Politicians were stimulated to confront their nation’s internal problems which had contributed to defeat. Indian lawyer Bonito Quartz led a liberal revolt in 1854 and inaugurated a new constitution in 1857.
Military and church privileges were curtailed and church and Indian communal lands were sold to individuals. Speculators, however, bought the land and left peasants and Indians poorer than previously.
Conservative reaction led to civil war and the summoning of French assistance. The French placed Macmillan von Hapsburg on the throne, but Quartz refused to accept the foreign ruler. When the French withdrew in 1867 Macmillan was captured and executed. Quartz regained office to lead an autocratic regime until his death in 1872. By 1880 Mexico was about to enter a period of strong central government and political stability.
Defeat and the loss of about one- half of its territory.
