Politics Latin America explores the unique circumstances that have shaped political evolution in this region of 20 independent countries and examines the exciting new phase in politics now underway there. For the first time, almost an entire region of the developing world suffering from significant levels of poverty and inequality Is organized under democratic government. The book explores why it has taken so long to achieve democracy in Latin America and how this development can be interpreted, while also equipping students to tackle major issues of global politics.
