This article engages with the politics of class struggle and state formation in modern Bolivia. It ex-amines how current forms of political contestation are shaped by the legacy of the Revolution of 1952 and the subsequent path of development. It is argued that state formation in Bolivia can be read as part of the history of passive revolution in Latin America within the spatial conditions of uneven and combined development shaping the geopolitics of the region. However, the expansion of passive revolution as a mode of historical development has been and continues to be rigorously contested by subaltern forces creating further spaces of class struggle
