Pressestimmen"Political Cultures in the Andes is an extraordinary book, one of those books that both provides fresh perspectives and brings together significant trends that have been in the air recently. The volume is full of provocative and interesting essays. This is a must-read for historians interested in the Andes or politics in Latin America more generally."--Peter Guardino, author of The Time of Liberty: Popular Political Culture in Oaxaca, 1750-1850 "Political Cultures in the Andes brings together a robust and engaged group of historians who provide an informative, sober, and shrewdly analytical discussion of cultural process and political formation. This is a unique and timely contribution to Latin American political history."--Claudio Lomnitz, author of Deep Mexico, Silent Mexico: An Anthropology of Nationalism "An important contribution to Andean studies and studies of political cultures."--Marc Becker, The Americas "The various contributions ... shed light on many aspects of Andean societies. For this reason the text is highly recommended to historians interested in the area and the period it covers."-- Peter Ross, Australian Journal of Politics and History "This collection will be essential reading for many professional scholars. Its case studies and its efforts to discuss the merits of a 'political culture perspective' will serve as points of departure not only for those interested in the Andes but also for historians of Latin American politics in general."-- Sujay Rao, History: Reviews of New Books "Political Cultures provides excellent background information about significant aspects of the political culture of the Andes..."-- Sheldon Avenius, Perspectives on Political Science
