Peru's self-proclaimed "revolution"--surprisingly extensive reforms initiated by the military government--has aroused great interest all over Latin America and the Third World. This book is the first systematic and comprehensive attempt to appraise Peru's current experiment in both national and regional perspective. It compares recent innovative approaches to Peru's problems with the methods used by earlier regimes, providing original and stimulating interpretations of contemporary Peru from the viewpoints of political science, sociology, history, economics, and education.Originally published in 1976.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

Constructing democratic governance : Latin America and the Caribbean in the 1990s( Book )

26 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This latest edition of this acclaimed text examines four themes vital to building market-oriented democracies in Latin America: the development of democratic institutions, globalization's impact, socio-political integration, and market reforms. Within these broad themes, the contributors explore how issues such as the performance of political parties, civilian control of the military, human rights protections, and executive-legislative relations are playing out in eight countries: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, and Venezuela. They find a mixed record on many fronts and discuss the uncertain state of democracy in several Latin American states in light of recent institutional setbacks and attempts to overhaul the political sphere."--Jacket
The California-Mexico connection( Book )

7 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Not since the early nineteenth century, when California was still part of Mexico, have there been such close ties between Mexico and its former northern territory. Today, one Californian in five is of Mexican heritage, compared with fewer than one in ten in 1970. California is Mexico's second-largest trading partner (after Texas), and Mexico is California's second-largest export market (after Japan). Millions of people from southern California and northern Mexico engage each day in an intricate web of transactions in which the border is much less significant than shared aims and interactions. California's growing Mexican connection shapes the state's life in many ways other than economic: from culture to cuisine, schools to boardrooms, workplace to voting booth. This book is the first in any language to explore the nature, scope, and effects of the California-Mexico connection. It analyzes the movements of people, goods, money, politics, and culture across the California-Mexico border, and explores its implications for both parties. By bringing together experts on Mexico, California, and the issue areas where they intersect, the fourteen papers in this book not only describe and analyze the connection but consider how Mexicans and Californians can help assure that the connection's effects are more consistently and mutually positive. The book is in four parts. Part I situates the California-Mexico connection in comparative and theoretical terms, and provides an overview from the Mexican perspective on the mutual impact of California and Mexico. Part II outlines demographic, economic, political, and social changes in Mexico and how they are affecting California. Part III focuses on Mexico's presence within California and its impact on society, education, health, labor, politics, and the economy. Part IV analyzes what can be done - by Mexicans and Californians - to strengthen the positive effects of the California-Mexico connection

Latin America's emergence : toward a U.S. response by Abraham F Lowenthal( Book )

13 editions published between 1979 and 1981 in English and Undetermined and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In order to provide a basis for improving United States policies toward Latin America in the 1980s, the document examines past U.S. policy and relations, evaluates recent U.S. approaches, and offers a reassessment of current U.S. interests in Latin America. The book is divided into five chapters. Chapter I discusses social, economic, and political change in Latin America from the 1950s through the 1970s. Topics include the 1961 Alliance for Progress, the prosperity and integration of Latin America into the world economy, the trend away from democratic institutions, and the rejection of U.S. dominance. Chapter ii compares the traditional view of U.S.-Latin America relations in terms of cultivating security and private economic interests with a new concept of U.S. interests. Problems of massive immigration, advanced nuclear research in Latin American countries, growing economic interdependence, and authoritarian regimes are noted. Chapter iii examines the policies of Presidents Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, and Carter. Chapter iv proposes a restructuring of the entire economic and political order on the basis of consistently applied liberal policies of a free market which serves the interests of weaker as well as stronger countries. Suggestions are offered for applying this approach to trade, finance, foreign investment, technology transfer, foreign investment, migration, and human rights. Methods for implementing free market policies are discussed in Chapter V. Discussion questions conclude the document. (Kc)
