This study examines fundamental theoretical and conceptual issues of social change in Latin America in the context of detailed empirical analysis. It challenges the major assumptions and propositions that underlie globalization theory, reworking and fine tuning the concepts of imperialism and social class as relevant to understanding the 'new world order'. The study centers on the structural features of Latin America and the state policies reconcentrating power in the capitalist class at the expense of labor. The study surveys the contradictory tendencies of concentrated wealth and power and the emergence of new socio-political movements and alternative development strategies to the dominant paradigm.

From the Back Cover:

"This book challenges the notion of an inevitable and irreversible globalization in which free marketeers and their political spokespeople are the only protagonists of history. Beginning with a wide-ranging elaboration of the reconcentration of wealth, power and property, the study focuses on the underlying imperial and class relations that define Latin America's place in the new world order."--BOOK JACKET.
