Background: In 1816 , the United Provinces of the Rio Plata declared their independence from Spain. After Bolivia , Paraguay , and Uruguay went their separate ways , the area that remained became Argentina. The country's population and culture were heavily shaped by immigrants from throughout Europe , but most particularly Italy and Spain , which provided the largest percentage of newcomers from 1860 to 1930. Up until about the mid-20th century , much of Argentina's history was dominated by periods of internal political conflict between Federalists and Unitarians and between civilian and military factions. After World War II , an era of Peronist authoritarian rule and interference in subsequent governments was followed by a military junta that took power in 1976. Democracy returned in 1983 , and has persisted despite numerous challenges , the most formidable of which was a severe economic crisis in 2001-02 that led to violent public protests and the resignation of several interim presidents. The economy has recovered strongly since bottoming out in 2002.
