"A very impressive work... Absolutely essential for scholars and students of Latin America and highly recommended generally."

"Reflections on Uneven Democracies is a highly effective testament to the remarkable intellectual career and influence of Guillermo O’Donnell, unquestionably the dominant figure in the study of Latin American politics since the early 1970s. What sets this book apart is its systematic effort to explore O’Donnell’s impact on subsequent scholarship, assess the current state of the field, and break new conceptual, theoretical, and empirical ground in democracy studies. A must-read for all scholars engaged in the comparative study of democracy, this book will reshape the research frontier for many years to come."

"This is a most fitting tribute to one of the towering figures in comparative politics of the past half century. The wide variety of topics addressed, the rigor of analysis, and the quality of the contributors reflect the breadth and depth of the scholarship of Guillermo O’Donnell and the impact of his teaching."

"This volume is a must-read for all who are concerned with development and Latin American political economy. It brings together two generations of leading international scholars who probe themes such as regime dynamics and stability, party politics and institutions, and the quality of democratic governance. The pieces build to a contribution that is reminiscent of O’Donnell himself: brilliant, quirky, important."
