Politics in Latin America, 2nd Edition

Politics in Latin America, 2nd

Approaching Latin American politics and government from a political science perspective, Politics in Latin America focuses on three unifying themes central to Latin America today--the challenges of development, liberty, and governance. These themes are fully and consistently integrated into the country studies, which examine seven important Latin American countries. The first four chapters provide a historical overview and describe the historical and theoretical importance of each of these challenges. Then each country study discusses the challenges as they pertain to that particular country. In the process of examining these three challenges, the text considers their implications for the future of democracy in the region.

The Riddle of Latin America

The Riddle of Latin

THE RIDDLE OF LATIN AMERICA explores the promise and paradox of Latin America in a novel way by giving equal weight to the colonial and national periods. This is essential because in Latin America colonialism started early and independence came late. The aim of this book is to provide unfamiliar readers with a more balanced, interpretive view of Latin America's long and complex history by identifying key patterns and trends and tracing them across time and space. Within chapters THE RIDDLE OF LATIN AMERICA takes a regional rather than country-by-country approach, treating, for example, the Greater Caribbean, Mexico and Central America, the Andes, the Southern Cone, and Brazil.
