Latin American Constitutions: The Constitution of Cadiz and its Legacy in Spanish America


Add your own review!

Overview

Latin American Constitutions provides a comprehensive historical study of constitutionalism in Latin America from the independence period to the present, focusing on the Constitution of Cadiz, a foundational document in Latin American constitutionalism. Although drafted in Spain, it was applied in many regions of Latin America, and deputies from America formed a significant part of the drafting body. The politicization of constitutionalism reflected in Latin America's first moments proved to be a lasting legacy evident in the legal and constitutional world of the region today: many of Latin America's present challenges to establishing effective constitutionalism can be traced to the debates, ideas, structures, and assumptions of this text. This book explores the region's attempts to create effective constitutional texts and regimes in light of an established practice of linking constitutions to political goals and places important constitutional thinkers and regional constitutions, such as the Mexican Constitution of 1917, into their legal and historical context.

'This book will be most useful to students of Spanish and Spanish American constitutional history, and is a serious addition to the literature.' Ivan Jaksic, Stanford University, California 'Mirow's work is a major contribution to the historiography of Latin American constitutionalism - a little-explored field - and is indispensable material for any study that focuses its attention on the constitutional history of Spain and Latin America.'
