A unique combination of two major approaches, this reader is separated into two parts. Part I focuses on four central themes: democratization, economic development, social policy, and changing political actors. Each chapter in this follows a debate format, with complementary readings. Part II features six chapters focusing on particular countries or regions within Latin America, examining how the central themes discussed in Part I play out in each particular case.
