Developments in Latin American Political Economy: States, Markets and Actors
J. Buxton, N. Phillips
Manchester University Press, Aug 20, 1999 - Political Science - 241 pages
A unique approach to contemporary Latin America, this volume brings together a range of experts to discuss people and issues significant to the region. Part I addresses the changing nature and interaction of the state and the market in Latin American countries and as the principal challenges of consolidating political and economic reform in a period of profound change. Part II examines a variety of traditional and non-traditional political roles, ranging from the military to women, and from the environmental lobby to human rights. It explores the ways in which the changing composition of the political debate is shaping the political arena.
