"Spectacular Modernity is an in-depth study of the relationship between dictatorial power and the production of the modern imaginary of Venezuela. Blackmore's book is a groundbreaking contribution to scholarship on mid-twentieth century modernization in Latin America."
--Patricio del Real, Harvard University
"In a present that scorns the dictatorship of Marcos Pérez Jiménez, the underlying framework of modernization that characterized it retains surprising traction. Blackmore's Spectacular Modernity is a beautiful and engaging text that deploys an aesthetic and political analysis of the dictatorship's transformation of space to explain why this is. She makes an undeniable contribution to studies of Venezuela and modernity more broadly, and offers a sharp warning to those who might turn back the democratic clock in search of an elusive modernity."
--George Ciccariello-Maher, Drexel University
