liberal governments

By the second half of the nineteenth century, Latin American countries were able to focus on projects of nation building after liberal governments regain political power. Once national governments secured political stability, they concentrate in modernizing endeavors employing the resources their booming economies provided. It is in this historical context, that both Argentina and Peru received an increasing number of immigrants from the Old World. However, these two immigrant groups differed not only because of their origin, but in how they inserted into the societies that received them. How was the treatment that European immigrants received in Argentina? How their experiences differed from those of the Asian immigrants that arrived in Peru? Why these two groups were received or/and treated so differently? What were the cultural and scientific reasoning behind these contrasting experiences?
