Resistance, Revolts and Rebellions

(p.94) Chapter Five Resistance, Revolts and Rebellions
Bourbon Peru 1750-1824
Liverpool University Press

This chapter examines the poverty and deprivation that characterised popular society in Peru's urban centres and the endemic violence of rural society in the Indian-dominated interior of the viceroyalty under the Bourbon monarchy. It looks at the background, nature, and consequences of the rebellion of José Gabriel Túpac Amaru in 1780–1783, along with the conspiracies, resistance, revolts, and protests that broke out in other places and at other times in the viceroyalty in the years before 1810. The revolts that took place in Peru and New Granada in 1780–1781 were in many ways similar to the Quito rebellion of 1765. Túpac Amaru's rebellion was the greatest protest movement in Spanish America prior to 1810, and erupted after he arrested and subsequently hanged the corregidor of Canas y Canchis, Antonio Arriaga, in the square of Tungasuca.
