*A superior volume with contributions from top scholars

*Explores critical dimensions of community-based economic development in Latin America
Transcending Neoliberalism examines the role of community, participation, decentralization, and empowering social movements in the quest for equitable development in Latin America. Over the past two decades, in the context of an epoch-defining process of globalization, a form of development has emerged that moves beyond the neoliberal focus on both market and state--one that reaches back for ideas into communities that have been created within rural and urban societies of developing and developed areas.
