Latin America is a turbulent region of profound cultural, social and geopolitical diversity that has produced some of history's most romantic icons as well as some of the most stereotypical dictators. Politics Latin America explores the factors that have shaped the region and examines its new political phase. It also explores why it has taken so long for democracy to become established in Latin America and how this development can be interpreted.
Who is it for? Students, lecturers and researchers interested in global politics, economics, and Latin American studies.
Presentation: Rigorously structured around history, institutions, processes, actors, ideas and international relations with an effective kit of boxes, tables and figures.
Would you recommend it? Yes. It is expensive, but the masterly treatment does credit to the complexities of the region and to the different approaches in studying it. It will appeal to a wide set of audiences.
Michael Foley is professor of international politics at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth.
