This collection of works by prominent Latin Americanists
explores the social and political dynamics of this important region
in transition to a post-neoliberal era. The first part deals with
the intensifying regional crisis created by neoliberal policies,
showing how regime stability has been broadly undermined, with
specific attention given to the cases of Panama and Argentina. In
the second part, a sympathetic yet critical evaluation is offered
on the diverse development strategies that have been pursued by
four leftist governments in power, namely, Cuba, Brazil, Venezuela
and Uruguay. In the final section, various aspects of the
constraints facing the region are discussed and consideration is
extended to some of the emerging social movements that seek to
radically transform Latin America.
