Pressestimmen

"Governing Latin America offers a superb overview of contemporary politics throughout the region. It blends original research with expansive synthesis in a way that is informative, provocative, and stimulating. The treatment of social movements is especially remarkable. I would recommend this book to students, colleagues, and the general reading public." Peter H. Smith, University of California "This is destined to become the essential text for courses on Latin American politics. It draws on contemporary political science for its analytical approach, and marries this with a lively and informed discussion of political development in Latin America. I know of no other book that succeeds so well in compressing a complicated story into a coherent and compelling narrative." Alan Angell, University of Oxford
