Editorial Reviews

Review

Based on the joint work of leading Latin American academics, all committed to a progressive vision and defenders of the popular classes, the book is a very welcome publication that will "help to promote... a new vision of Latin America, breaking away from colonialist nostalgia or intellectual inertia". -- Miguel Angel Villena, El Pais

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Even though it's five years old, this book is a great contribution to an understanding of the political processes taking place in Latin America today. It lays out the questions clearly, simply and non-dogmatically. It's a book to inform rather than "convince" or proselytize. I highly recommend this collection.

Format: Paperback
Latin America's left wave was a colossal failure. Countries that maintained solid economic policies (Chile and Colombia) are prospering, while those that didn't are nearing economic failure. The left wave was Latin America's most disastrous event since the wave of military regimes. The pendulum is starting to correct itself in many of these countries.
