The political economy of Central America since 1920 by V Bulmer-Thomas( Book )

34 editions published between 1987 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 850 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book Victor Bulmer-Thomas uses his previously unpublished estimates of the national accounts to explore economic and social development in the five Central American republics from 1920. He examines in detail variations in economic policy between countries which help to account for differences in performance. The major political developments are woven into the analysis and linked to changes in internal and external conditions. Growth under liberal oligarchic rule in the 1920s, heavily dependent on exports of coffee and bananas, was accompanied by modest reform programmes. The 1929 depression, which hit the region hard, undermined most of the reforms and ushered in a period of dictatorial rule in all republics except Costa Rica. The Second World War, particularly after the entry of the United States, at first strengthened the dictatorships, but ultimately produced challenges to rule by authoritarian caudillos. The social upheavals accompanying the post-war export-led boom forced governments in each republic to address the question of economic, social and political reform

Mexico and the North American Free Trade Agreement : who will benefit?( Book )

19 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 685 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By joining in a free trade agreement with Canada and the United States, Mexico has become the first independent developing country to be integrated with developed countries. While Mexico is expected to derive net benefits from this arrangement, it is clear that there will be losers as well as gainers. In addition, the evercloser integration between Mexico and the rest of North America carries implications for Mexico's relationship with the rest of the world. All of these changes must be managed within a political system which has traditionally resolved such pressures in a relatively authoritarian way. This book explores the economic as well as socio-political dimensions of the changes expected in Mexico and the question whether economic liberalisation will necessarily lead to political liberalisation

15 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the economic history of the Caribbean in the two hundred years since the Napoleonic Wars and is the first analysis to span the whole region. It is divided into three parts, each centered around a particular case study: the first focuses on the nineteenth century (,The Age of Free Trade,); the second considers the period up to 1960 (,The Age of Preferences,); and the final section concerns the half century from the Cuban Revolution to the present (,The Age of Globalization,). The study makes use of a specially constructed database to observe trends across the whole region and chart the progress of nearly thirty individual countries. Its findings challenge many long-standing assumptions about the region, and its in-depth case studies shed new light on the history of three countries in particular, namely Belize, Cuba, and Haiti"--

Empire in retreat : the past, present, and future of the United States by V Bulmer-Thomas( Book )

7 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A sweeping history of the United States through the lens of empire-and an incisive look forward as the nation retreats from the global stage A respected authority on international relations and foreign policy, Victor Bulmer-Thomas offers a grand survey of the United States as an empire. From its territorial expansion after independence, through hegemonic rule following World War II, to the nation's current imperial retreat, the United States has had an uneasy relationship with the idea of itself as an empire. In this book Bulmer-Thomas offers three definitions of empire-territorial, informal, and institutional-that help to explain the nation's past and forecast a future in which the United States will cease to play an imperial role. Arguing that the move toward diminished geopolitical dominance reflects the aspirations of most U.S. citizens, he asserts that imperial retreat does not necessarily mean national decline and may ultimately strengthen the nation-state. At this pivotal juncture in American history, Bulmer-Thomas's uniquely global perspective will be widely read and discussed across a range of fields
