Synopsis: Domingo Faustino Sarmiento (1811-1888) was—and continues to be—one of the most important and controversial figures in Latin American history. Diplomat, statesman, educator, visionary, and president of Argentina from 1868 to 1874, he also produced two avowed masterpieces of Spanish prose—Facundo and Recuerdos de Provincia. He saw himself as the standard-bearer of European liberalism in Spanish America and the architect of a nation built on its ideals. Almost all of the great shapers of intellectual life in Latin America have had to reckon with his visions of culture and progress.

First of its kind in English, this collection of 22 essays by preeminent interpreters of Latin American culture tackles the paradox of the Sarmiento legacy—his ambitious attempt to reshape Argentina into a modern, export economy society set against his unrivaled position at the center of Spanish American letters—and shows the ways in which the political and literary projects are inextricably linked. Since Sarmiento's legacy continues to define contemporary ideologies, this book is certain to provoke debates among students of Latin American history, politics, and culture.

About the Author: Tulio Halperín Donghi is Professor of History at the University of California, Berkeley; Iván Jaksic is Associate Professor of History and Director of the Center for Latin America at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee; Gwen Kirkpatrick is Associate Professor of Spanish at the University of California, Berkeley; Francine Masiello is Professor of Spanish and Comparative Literature at the University of California, Berkeley.
