"Colombian specialists, regardless of their discipline, will find much to ponder in this reinterpretation of Colombian history, but because Uribe-Uran has placed his data in a comparative framework, professors and graduate students who study the colonial and postcolonial history of other Latin American countries will benefit as well. A monumental book!" -- Jane M. Rausch, University of Massachusetts, Amherst
"Honorable Lives is an important addition to our knowledge of elite behavior in Latin America. Uribe-Uran's work creates a vital connection between group biography and local politics, giving us a social history of late eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Colombian politics. By highlighting both lawyers' political actions and the consequences of those actions in the crucial transition period from colony to nation, Uribe-Uran makes a wonderful contribution to our understanding of the process of nineteenth century modernization." -- Susan Socolow, Emory University
"In this work Uribe-Uran looks at familiar data in new ways as well as uncovering much fascinating new data and tying it all together in a refreshingly original interpretation. We have here a major addition to the literature on Colombian history--and specialists in other Latin American nations can profit from reading it too." -- David Bushnell, Professor Emeritus of Latin American History, University of Florida
"Victor Uribe has written an important book about Colombia in the middle period. On one level it provides an understanding of lawyers, their education, and careers in the late colonial and early republican periods (1780-1850). More broadly, it offers a challenging interpretation of Colombian politics that explains political patterns in the early republican period in terms of family status inherited from the late colonial years. While I do not completely agree with every aspect of the interpretation, I have learned much from Uribe's study. It offers a construction of history that everyone interested in Spanish America in the middle period will profit from reading and pondering." -- Frank Safford, Northwestern University
