The Age of Dissent: Revolution and the Power of Communication in Chile, 1780–1833 argues that the defining feature of the revolutionary era in Chile was the emergence of a profaned and pluralistic political landscape. The book shows how, by reframing the power of communication and engaging in new and dissenting communicative practices, people of multiple political affiliations and social backgrounds revolutionized not only political institutions and ideas but the very nature of politics.
