Reassembling social security : a survey of pensions and health care reforms in Latin America by Carmelo Mesa-Lago( Book )

22 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The reform of social security pensions and healthcare is a key issue for the modern world, and in many ways Latin America has acted as a social laboratory for the reform of these systems. From the reforms that took place in Chile in 1981, most pension and health care systems in the region have seen reform, and been fully or partially privatized. Many other countries considering reform of their own systems have been influenced by the policies implemented in Latin America." "Yet despite the importance and influence of these reforms, until now there has not been an integrated and comprehensive analysis of the changes and their effects. This book is the result of four years of painstaking work, data collection, field research and international collaboration, and so fills the vacuum in the literature with a systematic comparison of pension and healthcare reforms in the 20 Latin American countries." "This is the first book to comprehensively study these influential reforms in Latin America's pension and health care systems, and as such will be of importance to academics and researchers interested in social security and welfare policy, pensions, health care, and public policy;Social security, pension, and health care policymakers; and social security, pension, and health care consultants and practitioners."--Jacket

Cuban studies 19 by Carmelo Mesa-Lago( Book )

4 editions published between 1989 and 2015 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Essays in volume 19 approach the provocative issues of religion, freedom of literary expression, and women's health care. The Catholic church in Cuba today is discussed in terms of its historic role, the current detente in its relations with the government, and the influence of national and international pressures. Protestantism in Cuba is represented by the experience of the Baptist church since Independence. The claim that official censorship toward Cuban artists and intellectuals has been relaxed is rebutted by charges that the situation has grown worse and that the mediocrity rules. U
