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

Format: Paperback
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.
