Since the first edition of this book was published ten years ago, democratic government has become more firmly established, if no less contentious, and the fragile economy, though still the definitive element in Dominican life, has benefitted from changes in global trade patterns and corporate investment. Yet the Dominican Republic remains a country mired in poverty and social tension. The authors explore the changes in governance in the Dominican Republic since the beginning of the 1980s: the economic transitions that have made the country an attractive site for foreign business and tourism yet have contributed to social unrest and emigration; the social and political conflicts created by debt, austerity and economic reform, and the Dominican Republic's relations with its neighbours and major trading partners.
