Beginning in the 1980s, Latin America became a laboratory for the ideas and policies of neoliberalism. Now the region is an epicenter of dissent from neoliberal ideas and resistance to U.S. economic and political dominance; Latin America’s political map is being redrawn. Already half a dozen progressive governments have swept into power—in Chile, Bolivia, Uruguay, Argentina, Brazil, and Venezuela—and more may follow. Latin America After Neoliberalism is a fascinating look at what is perhaps the most politically dynamic region in the world—and an authoritative guide to the political movements and leaders that are part of this historic change.

Published in conjunction with the North American Congress on Latin America (NACLA) and written by leading progressive analysts of the region, this book takes on the full spectrum of contemporary issues in Latin America, from political transformation to the role of women, indigenous people, and labor coalitions. Latin America After Neoliberalism attempts to make sense of the ongoing upheavals throughout the continent as it moves into the vanguard of an international rejection of neoliberalism for a new and viable progressive alternative.

From Publishers Weekly:

The recent rise of progressive politicians in Latin America represents a sea change for the continent away from unwavering faith in previous reforms and unfettered United States dominance. This book places itself at the turning point, looking back at the failure of previous reforms and forward to how the new progressive movements might succeed or fail. Written by prominent scholars, analysts and writers covering the region, the 14 essays include well-researched and organized arguments against open-market reforms. The essays show how, even as free trade and economic integration has helped stimulate certain economies, the gap between the rich and poor has grown and stability declined. While the authors largely blame the recommended reforms of the U.S.-influenced World Bank and International Monetary Fund, a few of them also hold the local oligarchies responsible for the concentration of wealth. The essays also emphasize that one of the biggest problems with neoliberal reforms—as well as approaches to violence, multiculturalism, and labor and feminist organizing—is the "one size fits all mentality." In the Latin America "after neoliberalism" presented here, grand ideologies and theories are put aside as the individual needs of countries are considered. (Nov.)
