Description

Drawing on new approaches in comparative politics, Democratic Latin America focuses on analyzing political institutions as a way to assess broader trends in the region’s politics, including the rise of democracy.

The text looks at the major institutions--executive, legislature, judiciary, military, and more--in 18 democratic countries to not only provide an expansive view of politics in Latin America but to also facilitate cross-national comparison. Democratic Latin America uniquely surveys the what” of the region’s politics as well as the “why” and “how” to help students critically consider Latin America’s future.
