Chapter Summary

According to Halperín Donghi, Great Britain's political aspirations in Latin America were defined by the type of economic interest that tied it to the region. As for the Bolivarian project, England was neither displeased by its plan to restore the essential features of the colonial order nor by the republicanism with which this project was branded. The sympathy it held it in was not at all tarnished by the prospect that Bolivar would unite a large part of the former Spanish empire under his leadership. Thus there is no basis at all 'to believe that the new hegemonic power systematically favoured the disaggregation of Latin America'.
