As is true in most of the democratic world, justice institutions in Latin America other than the Supreme Court are important yet understudied. Beyond High Courts: The Justice Complex in Latin America is an excellent contribution that helps address that lacuna." - Scott Mainwaring, Jorge Paulo Lemann Professor of Brazil Studies, Harvard Kennedy School "As a researcher and teacher in comparative judicial politics it is exciting to see a new work on non-peak judicial institutions. Beyond High Courts: The Justice Complex in Latin America makes an important contribution to the field. The contributors address a clear set of questions across an array of judicial actors in Latin America. The volume contains comparative and single country case studies and helps to fill both empirical and theoretical gaps in the literature on comparative judicial politics." - Druscilla Scribner, University of Wisconsin, Oshkosh
