Because of Latin America's long history of military juntas, analysts who have studied regime change in the region have focused on political and military elites. In the recent case of Chile, however, the success of democratic transition can be credited in large part to the remarkable influence of intellectuals involved in public affairs. In Thinking Politics Jeffrey Puryear examines this unprecedented role played by intellectuals inChile's return to democracy.

" Thinking Politics provides thorough coverage of an important but neglected topic by a uniquely qualified observer. Through his work with the Ford Foundation, Jeffrey Puryear had an unparalleled opportunity for an outside agent to witness the development of the social scientists of Chile and their impact on democratization. He tells the story well, he analyzes it in a way that could be relevant to other cases, and he presents the policy implications for support of the social sciences in less developed countries in a convincing manner."―Paul W. Drake, University of California, San Diego

"This first-rate work is accurate, original, and compelling. It addresses an important topic―the relationship between ideas and politics―that has seldom been analyzed in Latin America."―José Joaquín Brunner Ried, Facultad Latina Americana de Ciencias Sociales, Santiago, Chile.

About the Author:

Jeffrey M. Puryear directs a project on education and economic competitiveness at the Inter-American Dialogue in Washington, D.C. He previously served as head of the Ford Foundation's regional office for the Andean and Southern Cone region of South America.

Review:

A significant contribution to explaining the role that outside assistance can play in the most unfavorable circumstances..Puryear relates the largely unreported role of Chilean intellectuals in the plebiscitary defeat of General Augusto Pinochet, which opened a path for democratic elections.
