Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Well worth reading for its coherence, the quality of chapters that use rich historical detail and the scope of its empirical roots.”  —Contemporary Sociology

“This timely book debunks the myth that ‘modernity’ is identical to ‘Western,’ and that ‘Western’ and ‘European’ are the same thing. A wonderful introduction to the nuances of the civilizing processes in the Americas.”  —Leon Zamosc, Director of Latin American Studies, University of California, San Diego

Globality and Multiple Modernities breaks with former reductionist readings of the nature of American – particularly Latin American – modernities. It is an indispensable reading for anyone trying to understand the roots of current-day political challenges.”  —Isidoro Cheresky, Professor of Contemporary Political Theory, University of Buenos Aires
