9780195339987: Politics of Latin America: The Power Game

Now in its third edition, Politics of Latin America explores both the evolution and the current state of the political scene in Latin America. Distinguishing itself from more traditional works on Latin American politics, this text demonstrates a nuanced sensitivity to the use and abuse of power and the importance of social conditions, gender, race, globalization, and political economy throughout Latin America. This new edition includes a new chapter on Bolivia and a stronger focus on anti-neoliberal economics, U.S.-Latin American relations, women's issues, and social movements.

The first part of the book presents relevant information about the region's geographic setting, history, economics, society, people, and religion, setting the stage for a more detailed analysis of the politics, democratization, political culture, political movements, and revolution in Latin America. The second part of the book consists of carefully constructed case studies of ten representative Latin American nations. Each case study traces the historical development of key political actors and institutions, analyzing contemporary power configurations.

Case Studies:
Guatemala, Susanne Jonas
Mexico, Nora Hamilton
Cuba, Gary Prevost
Brazil, Wilber Albert Chaffee
Argentina, Aldo C. Vacs
Chile, Eduardo Silva
Venezuela, Daniel Hellinger
Colombia, John C. Dugas
Nicaragua, Gary Prevost and Harry E. Vanden
Bolivia, Waltraud Morales (new to this edition)
Incorporating maps, tables, chronologies, bibliographies, and clear indications of key players, Politics of Latin America, Third Edition, is indispensable for students and other readers wishing to gain a deeper understanding of this complex, dynamic, and rapidly changing region of the world.

About the Author :

Harry E. Vanden is Professor of Political Science and International Studies at the University of South Florida in Tampa. Gary Prevost is Professor of Political Science at St. John's University and the College of St. Benedict.

Review :


"The distinct advantage of Politics of Latin America, Sixth Edition, is its attention to intersectionality. It treats race and gender in a very integrated and holistic manner. The book will also appeal to those who want a good overview of politics and history with a representative sample of country cases."

--Erica Townsend-Bell, Oklahoma State University


"The interdisciplinary nature of Politics of Latin America--especially its interplay of history, geography, the economy, and social forces--makes it a distinct innovation in the field. I would most definitely recommend it to a colleague."

--Daniel S Haworth, University of Houston, Clear Lake


This text combines three essential elements: theory, salient themes, and case studies written by specialists. It provides a solid context for the region that permits students to better understand Latin America's political development and current politics."

--Maria R. Garcia-Acevedo, California State University, Northridge


"Politics of Latin America, Sixth Edition, has a significant number of both thematic chapters and case-study chapters, which gives professors a lot of flexibility."

--Megan Sholar, Loyola University of Chicago
