Latin American Democracies in the New Global Economy
| Price: $ 24.5
"...Useful to professional people interested in Latin America area studies, political scientists concerned with international relations more generally, and economists working on issues of economic development."¿John Sheahan, Professor Emeritus, Williams College
The efforts of Latin America's democracies to grapple with the forces of the new global economy, and at the same time to undertake domestic restructuring, have been a frustrating tangle of opportunities and setbacks.
This collection addresses those efforts, concentrating on the effects of changes toward more open economies in the context of improving living conditions and democratic governance.
The authors emphasize the need to analyze jointly the economic, political, and social dimensions of the region's uncertain transformation. They shed new light on evolving issues of economic integration, financial instability, human capital development, decentralization, and democratic processes.
Ana Margheritis is assistant professor of political science at the Center for Latin American Studies, University of Florida.
