"Seldom does a new book as noteworthy cross my desk …. [This is] an excellent history… a complex prescription for how the left might yet play an essential role in post-cold-war Latin America… a book that overturns stereotypes and challenges easy wisdom."
— Nicolas Shumway, The New York Times Book Review
"Extraordinary…. [This book] attempts to do nothing less than restore direction to the Latin American left…. Surprising and refreshing." — Los Angeles Times Book Review
