Honorable Lives : Lawyers, Family, and Politics in Colombia, 1780-1850
"Honorable Lives presents a portrait of lawyers in late colonial and early modern Colombia. Uribe-Uran focuses on the social origins, education, and careers of those qualified to practice law before the highest colonial courts - Audiencias - and the republican courts after the 1820s. In the course of his study, Uribe-Uran answers many questions about this elite group of professionals. By exploring the lives of lawyers, Uribe-Uran is also able to present a general history of Latin America while examining the key social and political changes and continuities from 1780 to 1850 - particularly among the elites and state managers."--BOOK JACKET.
