About the Author:

Kirsten Schultz is a Fellow in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at The Cooper Union in New York City.

Review:

"Schultz really shines in her analysis of political rhetoric. In particular, she shows how flexible rhetorical categories allowed disparate factions to agree...Schultz concludes with a very detalied analysis of competing definitions of constitutionalism within Brazil and in Portugal...a fine work that substantively advances our understanding of Brazil's transition from colony to nation."
-Judy Bieber, American Historical Review
"She is also to be commended for the dispassionate quality of her analysis and conclusions. However provocative the subjects, she conveys the perspectives of contemporaries with care and comes to her own assessments with judicious detachment. It is a welcome book, clearly written, vigorously argued, and potentially seminal. It is sure to endure."
-H-Net Reviews
"A remarkably interesting book about a long-neglected episode in South American history.."
-Foreign Affairs
"However much this study owes to the last decade or two of fashionable cultural history, it is grounded in a very thorough study of archival sources and published contemporary works....She is also to be commended for the dispassionate quality of her analysis and conclusions....This cultural approach and close ideological reading are an innovative contribution with clear potential for further work by others....It is a welcome book, clearly written, vigorously argued, and potentially seminal. It is sure to endure.."
-H-LatAm, Jeffrey D. Needell, Dept. of History, U. of Florida, April, 2002
"This book will be richly rewarding for those interested in the relationship between ideas and practice and between politics and society, both generally and during the transition from theearly modern to the modern age.."
-Hispanic American Historical Review, Thomas H. Holloway
