Book Description

October 26, 2009 928081172X 978-9280811728 First Edition

In this book, some of the world's leading Latin Americanists explore the ways in which the region has reengaged globalization. Among the timely questions are: What is the relationship of China and India with Latin America? Has increased international political cooperation among Latin nations changed their foreign policy toward other regions and on specific issue areas? How have the different "Lefts," as exemplified by the governments of Venezuela's Hugo Chávez and Brazil's Lula shaped the region? What is the outlook of new entities such as the South American Union of Nations, and how have older entities such as the Organization of American States fared?

With a new U.S. administration shifting gears in foreign policy and a global financial crisis leading many to question the future of capitalism, Latin America is especially well positioned to make the most of the resulting international upheaval. This book provides a sharp, up-to-date analysis of the new sources of political power and allegiances in the region today.

"This is an ambitious and important volume. It brings together a group of the hemisphere's best analysts and thinkers to explain how profoundly Latin America has changed in recent years, and what those changes mean for the people and politics of the region and for its relations with the U.S. and the rest of the world."—Peter Hakim, president, Inter-American Dialogue

Editorial Reviews


"Here is an accessible compilation of 17 lively essays by senior international relations theorists that describe how Latin American nations-ever more democratic, divided, and assertive-are interacting with one another and with the fast-changing global system."
- Richard Feinberg, Foreign Affairs

"Which Way Latin America? Hemispheric Politics Meets Globalization... steps beyond the traditional backward-looking approach of social sciences to analyze the future of globalization in Latin America. In a sophisticated exercise of educated guessing, the editors, both fellows at Canada's Centre for International Governance Innovation, and their collaborators ponder questions of democratic consolidation, institutional strength, trade and economic integration, and international relations as they affect Latin America."
- Patricio Navia, Americas Quarterly

5.0 out of 5 stars How the region meets the world? October 28, 2011
If you want to understand today's regional dynamics, you should go beyond geographical boundaries and focus on the interaction between global forces and regional actors. Cooper and Heine's volume bring together leading specialists in Latin America to study how the relations with the United States and emerging powers are challenging multilateral cooperation and how important regional powers are responding to these new situation. A must to understand today's Latin America.
