“An innovative, eloquent, and thoroughly researched study on the political culture of an important Andean region during the transition from colonial to republican order.”—Nils Jacobsen, University of Illinois — N/A
“This is a very good book, and may even come to be a classic in this cutting-edge sub-field of Latin American history. The research is impressively deep, the writing clear, engaging, and rising at points to lyricism.”—Eric Van Young, University of California, San Diego — N/A
“This pioneering study of the changing links between the state and its Indian subjects during the transition to the Republic is not only a truly brilliant reconstruction of a complex and enigmatic process but a vital contribution to the current effort to make sense of the painful birth of modern Spanish America.”—Tulio Halperín Donghi, University of California, Berkeley — N/A
