El caciquisme a la província de Castelló durant la Restauració

Eduardo Pérez Arribas

Resum


In this article the main traits of bossism in the zone of Castelló during the period of Spanish History called Restoration (1874-1931) are exposed.
Bossism has its roots in a peculiar social reality, and it's for this cause that it is not possible to talk about a unique model for all the country. The area of Castelló, in this time, was agrarian and conservative, with a great degree of illiteracy and, therefore, weak politically (with only one exception: the capital). Politically mighty bosses, in this context, were intermediaries between the central polítical Power and the citizens, by controlling main institutions of the province.
