This paper compares post-colonial constitutional choice in Mexico and Argentina. Both countries adopted internally imposed, non-evolutionary constitutions inspired by exogenous ideas. But Argentina's founders adopted a constitution that was radically mismatched to the underlying culture, resulting in constitutional failure and military coups. Mexico's founders, on the other hand, took great pains to adapt exogenous idea s to endogenous culture, leading to constitutional stability for Mexico.

Palabras clave: Constitutional adoption, Mexico founding, Argentina founding, Constitutional failure, Constitutional culture.
