Fault Lines of Democracy in Post-transition Latin America
Felipe Agüero, Jeffrey Stark
North-South Center Press/University of Miami, 1998 - Political Science - 407 pages
Concerns about democratization in Latin America today center not on the threat of authoritarian regression, but on the depth, quality, fairness, and completeness of democratization thus far. Large-scale economic and social reforms, stronger and more complex civil societies, and processes of integration and globalization call for new approaches in order to understand the unfolding of democracy in the region. In this context, the contributors to this volume explore the often disjunctive aspects of Latin American democracy, providing a nuanced understanding of contemporary democratic governance.
