Pressestimmen"De la Fuente has gone beyond integrating the subjects and issues of previous works on the subject in this methodologically sophisticated historiographic project: he has enriched them with important new insights. This contribution will be welcomed by specialists in the field." - Tulio Halperin Donghi, author of The Contemporary History of Latin America "What a splendid book! Children of Facundo is sure to become one of the touchstones in the study of politics and society in nineteenth-century Latin America." - Jeremy Adelman, Princeton University "Children of Facundo will stand at the forefront of works on what is arguably the single most important topic among contemporary Latin American historians: the lower classes and nation-state formation. This is history at its best." - Charles Walker, author of Smoldering Ashes: Cuzco and the Creation of Republican Peru, 1780 - 1840
