"Essential for collections on Latin American politics, problems of democratization, and Third World political development."
"Scholars and students alike will benefit from this uniformly rich set of essays by leading social scientists working on the Andean region. The volume provides both the analytical tools and historical and contemporary perspectives necessary to enable a deeper understanding of the common elements of crisis, significant variations, and potential trajectories in state-society relations across the Andes today."
--Jonathan Hartlyn, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
