The Public Man: An Interpretation of Latin American and Other Catholic Countries

By Glen Caudill Dealy
University of Massachusetts Press, 1977
128 pp. $10.00
Purchase

Professor Dealy, a political scientist, has produced a short but extremely interesting and valuable cultural analysis, in search of motivations and behavioral traits that lie beneath and beyond class and political distinctions. He posits a political culture of caudillaje, an ethos that impels men to an overly ardent quest for public influence, with such reverberations as the separation of private and public morality.
