This volume's multidisciplinary cast of authors uses a comparative framework to explore the implications of global transformations and national development policies for urban employment and social inequality in Latin America. Using the cases of Mexico, Guatemala, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Chile, and Argentina, the authors examine socioeconomic change in labor markets, including privatization, industry and export transformations, growth of precarious and informal employment, gender realignments, and territorial reorganization.
