(Lincoln: University of Nebraska Press, 2018. Pp. 228. Tables, notes, bibliography, index.) Over the past three decades, the “new political history” has produced a rich scholarship about the emergence and development of the nation- state in Latin America.

In this work, Rodríguez explains some fundamental concepts and arguments about Hispanic political cul- ture that are not well acknowledged among Anglophone scholars. The book’s eight essays, previously published in Spanish as a single collection, argue that the Hispanic world possessed a common political culture based on the profession of Catholicism and on an imagined social compact between subjects and their king.

Abstract

2018 Book Reviews 225 Political Culture in Spanish America, 1500–1830. By Jaime E. Rodríguez O. (Lincoln: University of Nebraska Press, 2018. Pp. 228. Tables, notes, bibliography, index.) Over the past three decades, the “new political history” has produced a rich scholarship about the emergence and development of the nation- state in Latin America. That historiographical turn, enriched by the postu- lates of the French linguistic turn and the Cambridge school of conceptual histor y, has explained in detail the origins and formation of the represen- tative political system in Latin America. One of the major proponents of the new political histor y is Jaime Rodríguez O., and this book offers a syn- thesis of his prolific academic trajector y. In this work, Rodríguez explains some fundamental concepts and arguments about Hispanic political cul- ture that are not well acknowledged among Anglophone scholars. The book’s eight essays, previously published in Spanish as a single collection, argue that the Hispanic world possessed a common political culture based on the profession of Catholicism and on an imagined social compact between subjects and their king. Rodríguez traced the origins of the Hispanic political culture to Spanish neo-scholastic theorists of the sixteenth and seventeenth
