Because of language barriers and a lack of institutionalized ties, the impressive literature on democratization in the former Soviet Union and Latin America is virtually unknown to authors from the other region. The striking similarities between these areas are best studied through comparison based on ground-level fieldwork. This approach highlights the blind spots of standard democratization and free-market modernization theory, which tends to universalize scenarios of economic development without paying sufficient attention to case studies. This volume explores similarities and differences between post-authoritarian political and economic transformations in Latin America and former Soviet Union. **Articles (all articles, unless otherwise noted, are in English): * “The Russian and Argentinian Experiences of Radical Reform: Between Economy and Politics,” Olessia Kirtchik, Mariana Heredia. * “Accountability Struggles in Democratic Argentina: Civic Engagement from the Human Rights Movement to the Néstor Kirchner Administration,” Enrique Peruzzotti. * “Activists in the Trap of Anti-Politics: An Exploration of the Powerlessness of Human Rights NGOs in Russia,” Françoise Daucé. * “Civil Society, Human Rights Struggles and Democratization in Argentina and Russia: Some Brief Comparative Conclusions,” Enrique Peruzzotti, Françoise Daucé. * “New Forms of Social Mobilization in Democratic Argentina,” Marina Farinetti. * “Illusions of Market Paradise: State, Business, and Economic Reform in Postsocialist Russia and Post-1980s Crisis Argentina,” Jeffrey K.
