Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Harbinger of Modernity: Marcos Aguinis and the Democratization of Argentina contains the table of contents and the acknowledgments. The book engages in a diversified analysis of Marcos Aguinis, the Secretary of Culture and prolific writer, whose civic program for cultural democratization provides the backdrop for a study of his literary oeuvre, spanning the genres of essay, dialogue, and novel. It maintains that, in his goals and methods, Aguinis participates in and builds on a threefold tradition: the public intellectual as a global historical entity with roots in the French Enlightenment; the public intellectual in Argentina; and the activist intellectuals of Latin America and Europe who are Aguinis's contemporaries and peers, and who likewise see themselves as global purveyors regarding the vertex of culture and politics in modern nation-states.

Keywords: Argentina; democratization; Marcos Aguinis
