"A thorough and rigorous text of the Moorean paradigm for Latin
America. Here we have an extraordinarily valuable and diverse set
of essays on the historical formation of Latin American political
cultures and the importance of agrarian structures therein."
"Represents a belated but welcome attempt to relate Latin American to a familiar corpus of grand theory: that propounded by Barrington Moore in his influential Social Origins of Dictatorship and Democracy. . . . The book is a good idea, well executed, and will be read with interest--even by those who have little time for Barrington Moore in particular, or grand theory in general."

"This is a book that has been waiting to be written for some time. The contributors include some of the giants in the field [who] will inspire others to write on this subject."
