Review:

"This edited volume is a welcome addition to a growing body of scholarship on the postneoliberal era, as the authors draw from a broad range of cases and theoretical approaches to account for the heterogeneity of political, social, and cultural processes currently under way. . . . This book s key contribution is to show how the economic and political upheavals of the 1980s and 1990s reconfigured Latin American societies and politics. . . . In sum, this book meets its goal of giving scholars and students of politics in Latin America crucial insights regarding the transformation of social, political, and cultural processes initiated by the neoliberal restructuring." - Latin American Politics and Society

"In Beyond Neoliberalism, Burdick, Oxhorn and Roberts bring together a diverse, interdisciplinary group of scholars to examine issues central to contemporary Latin American politics. Rather than examine the now familiar debates regarding the origins, dynamics, and consequences of the Washington Consensus, their volume endeavors to link deep analysis of the transformations wrought by market-oriented reforms to the question of how individuals and collective actors are in the process of generating alternatives that "lie beyond" neoliberalism. This collection's success stems from the contributors' careful attention in their research to the gradual, uneven and always contradictory construction of resistances and alternatives by actors and processes frequently located far from the commanding heights of the state and control over the political economy." - William C. Smith, Professor and Editor, Latin American Politics and Society, Department of International Studies, University of Miami.

"This interdisciplinary collection addresses many of the most volatile, vibrant political and social arenas of the region today. The contributors explore head-on a range of left and not-so-left political economy projects, and leading anthropologists provide valuable analyses of indigenous movements and ethnoracial identity struggles. Most useful are the explorations of the vicissitudes of today s dynamic mining sector, a locus of some of the greatest, most enduring environmental devastation and labor abuse - phenomena largely neglected by conservative and progressive national governments alike." - Katherine Hite, Department of Political Science and Director, Program in Latin American and Latino/a Studies, Vassar College
