TENTI, María Mercedes. The Consolidation of Santiago del Estero´s State: (1903-1916). Trab. soc. [online]. 2010, n.14. ISSN 1514-6871.

The work is framed within a larger research of the formation of the Santiago del Estero's State since the family Taboada lost their power, in 1875, to the arrival to office of radicalism in 1916. This stage, which I call the consolidation of state belongs to the final period in which the provincial government outlined in the late nineteenth century, began to strengthen as the result of the arrival of a new intellectual elite, that focus their business on the state organization.  It is possible to identify a better definition of the state and the strengthening of institutional projects, how ever related to personal interests of the intellectual bourgeoisie linked to agricultural and commercial activities, inspire by the positivism. New challenges such as an increasing urbanization and social ills to name some, awaked  the need to exercise more social control, that translated into a leading position of the ruling bourgeoisie from office, and new roles that strengthen the State and its role. The State as fundraiser perfected its mechanisms while projected costs through budgets and the enactment of tax laws in order to compensate, in part, the material backwardness of the province. Administration's organization was improved. The hypothesis that is sustained is that the consolidation and modernization of the state, although there was a higher resolution in the field of political decisions, in the mechanisms of socialization and  incorporation persisted forms of practices, with more features duration, combining dynamically, therefore, factors of continuity and change.
