From the Publisher"This book fills an important gap in our understanding of Chilean development. By putting law and the legal system at the forefront of his analysis, Julio Faundez offers a strikingly original account of a political system in which legality and the constitution played central roles in the shape and outcome of political and economic conflict from the early Independence period to the fall of the Popular Unity government in 1973. It offers a model for the exploration of the role of law in the development of other countries in Latin America."
—Alan Angell, Emeritus Fellow of St Antony's College, and former Director, Latin American Centre, University of Oxford
"This is an extremely valuable study that adds significantly to the understanding of the role of legal institutions in the political process in Latin American in general, and Chile in particular. Faundez employs a wide gamut of sources for an original perspective and approach that provides striking insight into the process of social change in Chile."
—Joseph Thome, Professor Emeritus of Law, University of Wisconsin
