The collection Historias Mínimas Republicanas that is now being launched by the Institute of Peruvian Studies makes available to the reader the knowledge generated by professional Peruvian and foreign historians in recent years, with pleasant and simple language, but without shying away from complexity or controversy.

This book tells the story of a world in transformation and of a society, the Peruvian one, that yearned for a better life. Although shared, this longing had different meanings for different sectors of the heterogeneous colonial society. Hence, the struggles for Peruvian independence were at the same time a civil war and an international war, a proxy war and a war of ideas, which involved all classes in pursuit of their own interests and dreams.
