SPOTA, Julio César. The chaco border and its fortlets (1862-1884): A study of historical anthropology focused on the theory of orgnanizations. Mem. am. [online]. 2009, n.17-1, pp. 85-117. ISSN 1851-3751.
This paper´s objective is to study the fortlets rol in the reinforcement project of the argentine national state in the Chaco region (1862-1884), all this, from the historical anthropology point of view. We will specifically try to analize the results of the establishment of military frontier settlements, as a retaining method for indigenous raids or "malones". Through the analisys of written sources and the study of recent scientific investigations, we try to explain the constant increasing cost of the fortlets lines, and also explain the study of the military frontier settlements from an organizational perspective.
