"The Time of Liberty takes on the most important issues around Mexican independence and draws fundamentally important and transforming conclusions. It is the finest analysis yet written of politics and political culture before, during, and after Mexican independence."--John Tutino, author of From Insurrection to Revolution in Mexico: Social Bases of Agrarian Violence, 1750-1940 "The Time of Liberty is a welcome and much needed addition to the literatures on popular political culture, indigenous politics, independence, and the first half-century of Mexico's independent political life. It will be influential in debates on nineteenth-century Mexican history and more broadly."--Florencia E. Mallon, author of Peasant and Nation: The Making of Postcolonial Mexico and Peru "Guardino's book makes a substantial contribution to our understanding of nonelite politics in early independent Mexico..."--Emmett Lombard, Perspectives in Political Science "A very valuable study."--Angela T. Thompson, History: Reviews of New Books "Exhaustive... Guardino provides an invaluable biography of Benito Juarez and his milieu in the heartland of La Reforma, and one which unravels whiggish projections of radical anti-clericalism and calls for the juridical abolition of indigenous communities back onto the 1820s and 1830s ... These contributions will help to make The Time of Liberty required reading and earn its passage into the canon of nineteenth-century Mexican history."--Everard Meade, Journal of Latin American Studies "Historians and graduate students will appreciate how the author constantly probes questions of historical research and historiography..."--Francie Chassen-Lopez, American Historical Review "Peter Guardino was one of the pioneers of the new scholarship on nineteenth-century nation and state formation, and especially the roles of subalterns in these processes, that emerged in the 1990s. His new book is an important and valuable addition to this debate... The book will be a touchstone for studies of popular politics, not only in Mexico..."--James E. Sanders, Canadian Journal of History "Peter Guardino's new book reflects some of the most interesting and innovative trends in the study of Mexican political history over the last decade or so, trends of which he himself has been one of the architects." --Eric Van Young, Journal of Social History
