AbstractThis investigation establishes a political and economic narrative of the La Reforma using documents detailing the rhetoric, executive action, and specific legislation that shaped La Reforma Guatemala. In addition to outlining the coming of late nineteenth-century Guatemalan Liberalism, it has presented the obstacles confronting Presidents Granados and Barrios and examined how the Revolutions' leaders employed rhetoric and executive action to achieve their similar but distinct brands of Liberalism. In detailing Presidents Granados' and Barrios' combined energies and examining some of their often overlooked efforts in an era of extensive economic and political reform, the study hopes to establish a revised, more accurate narrative of the Guatemalan Reform.
