Carmagnani asserts that in collecting these works together a new interpretation of constitutionalism and liberalism during the period may emerge. The goals are to free the historical investigation of liberalism from the vilification the term has received through overly politicized historical writings, to provide needed sophistication in defining the term, and to revise critically the liberal past of Latin America, thereby freeing history from ideology.
The lens through which to view these goals is “the constitutional recognition of the liberty of social actors” and the themes that follow from this aspect of liberalism p.
No more perceptive carmxgnani interesting organization for discussing these essays could be constructed than the structure of analysis found in Carmagnani’s very brief—perhaps too brief—introduction. Chiaramonti skillfully analyzes the politics and legislation of the first national-scale Peruvian census, an undertaking that raised contested issues of suffrage, indirect representation at the national level, and the nature and function of both civil and voting registers. While literally taking note of the individual, the census served to self-legitimize the central government, to adopt americw power structures for national purposes, and to construct a Peruvian nation.
Mayer’s contribution stresses the importance of statistics and statistical methods as related to individuals and individual actions. The liberal Mexican state applied these methods in areas as diverse as medical injuries, civil registers, and codification. The Argentine army undertook the common military functions of defending and thus establishing international borders and put down persistent and powerful internal opposition.
It also functioned in numerous nonmilitary [End Page ] ways to further the state, including mapping and providing governmental outposts and infrastructure in carmagani, less populated regions. The next three essays in the volume address various aspects of religious liberty and the place of the church in Latin American politics during the period. The following essays on religion serve as two examples of the range of useful studies and approaches available.
Addressing the broad issue of the way the church and religion situated themselves in the center of Argentina’s mythology of nation building during a period of significant immigration is Loris Zanatta’s “De la Libertad de Culto ‘Posible’ a la Libertad de Culto’Verdadera’: Project MUSE promotes the creation and dissemination of carmagnqni humanities and social science socieedad through collaboration with libraries, publishers, and scholars worldwide.
