Review of the hardback: '... the best available book on why Chile's judges have hitherto tended to facilitate and condone illiberal, antidemocratic, and anti-legal policies, and why these tendencies persist with respect to civil rights in general, beyond the Pinochet-era human rights cases.' Journal of Law and Society
Review of the hardback: 'Lisa Hilbink's new book, Judges beyond Politics in Democracy and Dictatorship: Lessons from Chile, responds to one of the central questions of ... recent research: when will judges act to bolster democracy and individual rights and when will they act to bolster authoritarianism and impunity? She provides a compelling response to this question based on the Chilean case.' Journal of Politics
