📙 Latin American State Building in Comparative Perspective : Social Foundations of Institutional Order by Marcus J. Kurtz — free download


Latin American State Building in Comparative Perspective provides an account of long-run institutional development in Latin America that emphasizes the social and political foundations of state-building processes. The study argues that societal dynamics have path-dependent consequences at two critical points: the initial consolidation of national institutions in the wake of independence, and at the time when the 'social question' of mass political incorporation forced its way into the national political agenda across the region during the Great Depression. Dynamics set into motion at these points in time have produced widely varying and stable distributions of state capacity in the region. Marcus J. Kurtz tests this argument using structured comparisons of the post-independence political development of Chile, Peru, Argentina and Uruguay. • Utilizes a research design aimed at accurately assessing long-term, path-dependent explanations by showing both the mechanisms that lead to the emergence of outcomes and those that produce them • Employs a four-country, dual paired comparison of Chile and Peru vs. Argentina and Uruguay to elucidate the consequences of different portions of the overall argument • Has a long historical sweep, considering post-independence political development in all four countries, and probes the external validity of the findings in an examination of the Prussian case
