This chapter begins with a description of Bolivia's nine departments, which are further subdivided into provinces, sections of provinces, and, finally, cantons. These nine departments map more than simply square kilometers or land distribution; they express a range of complex social geographies, which can be divided not only into jurisdictional units, but into categories of the Bolivian social imagination. The discussions then turn to the dilemmas of modernity in Bolivia and the relationship between law and liberalism in Bolivia, followed by an overview of the subsequent chapters.
