Ricardo Levene

Levene, Ricardo

 

Born Feb. 7, 1885, in Buenos Aires; died there Mar. 13, 1959. Argentinian historian and lawyer. Professor at the University of Buenos Aires and the National University of La Plata. A member of the National Academy of Law and Social Sciences. A member of the National Academy of History and its president for many years. Author of a number of basic studies.

Levene viewed the political history of the country in isolation from its economic and class basis. His conceptions essentially coincided with the views of V. F. Lopez and B. Mitre, the forefathers of the liberal positivist school. He evaluated the dictatorial regime of J. M. Rosas (1829–52) in negative terms and condemned the expansionist aspirations of foreign powers in La Plata. His works contain valuable factual material.

However, because the book was addressed to Atlantic history and historians such as Douglass North, rather than to Argentine historians, the ways that Adelman has challenged interpretations and approaches by Miron Burgin, Vera Blinn Reber, Nicholas Shumway, Juan Carlos Nicolau, Ricardo Levene, and Jose Carlos Chiaramonte are completely opaque, and only those who have read deeply in this literature can discern how Adelman has engaged these authors.
