The U.S. Constitution and the Constitutions of Latin America

Volume 7

Edited by Kenneth W. Thompson

This volume addresses a long-neglected area in constitutional and international studies, Latin America. The book contains penetrating appraisals of the Spanish heritage as it influences Latin American constitutionalism and more recently American democracy. A distinguished historian, a Peruvian political scientist, three former U.S. ambassadors, a legal scholar, and a respected political theorist provide a thorough examination of the U.S. Constitution and the constitutions of Latin America in this well-written treatise. This book is the seventh volume in the Miller Center series on constitutionalism. Co-published with the Miller Center of Public Affairs. « less more »
