Summary:
"El libro es una especie de sociología de la cultura aplicada a América Latina. Aunque los temas son muy concretos, el enfoque del autor tiende a ser filosófico. Tradición y modernidad son los dos ejes de la obra, pero esta caracterización dista mucho de captar toda su complejidad"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.
