Book Details


It was widely predicted that the end of the Cold War would lead to a prolonged period of US-friendly neo-liberal hegemony in Latin America. In fact, the left has re-emerged as a serious political actor. Today, leftist or 'progressive' political forces are in government in nine Latin American nations, and social movements continue to challenge neo-liberalism in several other countries.*BR**BR*This book is a comprehensive study of the wide variety of leftist governments, parties and movements in the region, including Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, Uruguay and Venezuela.*BR**BR*It is essential for students of Latin American politics, political theory, social movements and international relations.
'A very welcome publication that will help to promote a new vision of Latin America, breaking away from colonialist nostalgia or intellectual inertia'
Miguel Ángel Villena, El Pais
