"This book offers a keen analysis of the roles played by writing and intellectuals in the configurations of Latin American urban institutions. Indeed, more than a book, "The Lettered City "could be better understood as an event, a self-reflective operation that radically questioned the conditions of thinking and writing in Latin America, a critical intensification of intellectual practices that both displaced and relocated the ubiquitous subject of Latinamericanism."-- Julio Ramos, University of California, Berkeley

John Charles Chasteen is associate professor of history at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is the highly acclaimed translator of Tulio Halperin Donghi's The Contemporary History of Latin America.
