Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Levitsky/Roberts work, nonetheless, will stand as the most comprehensive treatment to date of the re-emergence of the Latin American left, and of the variable performance in office of the 'first generation' of left and centre-left governments."

(Philip Chrimes International Affairs)

"A must read for those interested in understanding the return of Latin America to the Left and the variation inherent in it."

(Choice)

"Impressive and authoritative... this is a very fine volume."

(Peadar Kirby European Review of Latin American and Caribbean Studies)

"A wide range of ideological perspectives... Levitsky and Roberts open the volume with a solid essay."

(Marc Becker Latin American Perspectives)
