"Roberto Gargarella provides a panoramic view of the structures of Latin American constitutionalism in the nineteenth century, and then shows how those structures were both preserved and transformed in the constitutional reforms of the twentieth and early twenty-first. This is a major contribution to the field."--Mark Tushnet, Harvard Law School "A breathtaking panorama of 200 years of Latin American constitutionalism. The central argument-that implementation of social rights is impeded by the absence of political reforms-will undoubtedly provoke widespread debates well beyond Latin America."--Adam Przeworski, New York University "An extraordinary achievement. Gargarella-widely recognized as one of the best constitutional scholars of our time-has come up with a path-breaking analysis of the Latin American constitutional tradition. Examining the constitutional issues that Latin American statesmen and jurists have dealt with in the last two centuries, Gargarella identifies patterns and insights which greatly illuminate our understanding of Latin America's constitutional trajectory. He skillfully links constitutional history, constitutional theory, and socio-legal analysis in a work destined to become canonical in the field of comparative constitutional law and theory. This is an indispensable book not only for scholars of Latin American constitutionalism and history, but for anyone interested in the current processes of constitutional reform in the region."--Javier Couso, Universidad Diego Portales Law School (Chile) "Roberto Gargarella has written a wonderful, remarkably sweeping, forcefully argued book on Latin American constitutionalism. Drawing together philosophy, political science, history, and constitutional law, he presents a compelling analysis of Latin American constitutions and constitutional traditions. He complements that analysis with a powerful normative-practical thrust. Latin America, he says, needs to reject PresiCríticas:
An original book and one of the first serious intellectual attempts to identify common features shared by the constitutional experience of all countries in the continent. Roberto Gargarella is affirming the existence of a "Latin American constitutionalism" and his book can be the cornerstone of a new field of study in constitutional law and constitutional theory.

BRAND NEW, Latin American Constitutionalism,1810-2010: The Engine Room of the Constitution, Roberto Gargarella, Latin America possesses an enormously rich constitutional history, but this legal history has only recently begun to be subjected to scholarly inquiry. As Roberto Gargarella contends, contemporary constitutional and political theory has a great deal to learn from this history, as Latin American constitutionalism has endured unique challenges that have not appeared in other regions. Such challenges include the emergence of egalitarian constitutions in inegalitarian contexts; deliberation over the value of "importing" foreign legal instruments; a long-standing exercise of socio-economic rights (which is only just starting in other areas of the world); issues of multiculturalism and indigenous rights; substantial experience with "unbalanced" versions of the system of "checks and balances" (due to the presence of so-called hyper-presidentialist regimes); and the succession of numerous and frequent constitutional changes. In this landmark book, Gargarella provides a broadly comparative history of Latin American constitutionalism, informed by constitutional theory. He organizes the book across four major historical periods of Latin American legal history, infusing this history with a discussion of the ideas of thinkers including Juan Bautista Alberdi, Francisco Bilbao, Simon Bolivar; Juan Egana, Jose Gonzalez Vigil, Victorino Lastarria, Juan Carlos Mariategui, Juan Montalvo, Jose Maria Mora, Mariano Otero, Manuel Murillo Toro, Jose Maria Samper and Domingo Sarmiento.
