Studies in the formation of the nation-state in Latin America( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book embraces a variety of disciplinary, thematic and country-based approaches to the complex and contested issues around the character of the nation-state in Latin America from the early nineteenth century. In recent years there has been a great deal of scholarly interest in this topic from the viewpoint of cultural and literary studies, but Latin America remains under-represented in general historical and sociological theories of nationhood." "The collection is derived from a range of analytical and stylistic approaches, seeking to develop debate and research on the topic through case-studies (including Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, Peru and Spain), historiographical review, and themes such as the role of violence, military conscription and pensions, money and the role of finance, early notions of development, the ambiguous role of liberalism, and how to evaluate the reach and qualities of the nation-state."--Jacket

"The seventeen contributors to this volume assess Mexico's political dynamics at the turn of the twenty-first century and the many pending challenges in the construction of a more fully democratic political order. They examine: (1) changes affecting the party system, electoral institutions, and voting behaviour; (2) the evolving role of the armed forces, organized labor, big business, and rural producers; (3) the new importance of civil society, the mass media, and cross-border social coalitions; and (4) key issue of political representation and governance, including executive-legislative relations, judicial performance, federalism, the constitutional rights of indigenous peoples, and the political role of Mexicans resident in the United States."--Jacket
Brazil since 1985 : politics, economy and society( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book looks at some of the important issues that help to understand the challenges of both building up and keeping a democracy working. How should we assess Brazil's experience of democracy? To what extent has the emergence of a democratic regime improved Brazilians' social, economic and political life? Has democracy been consolidated to the point of making a political breakdown unthinkable or improbable? These are questions that any student of Brazil has to address. The answers to them, however, are far from simple."--BOOK JACKET

British railways in Argentina, 1857-1914 : a case study of foreign investment by Colin M Lewis( Book )

3 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lewis examines the complex combinations of British and Argentine forces involved in the rapid development of modern Argentina after its former pastoral and parochial socio-economic structure was superseded by the formation of a modern republic, which was largely financed by external sources and made it one of the most dynamic and prosperous countries of the mid and late 19th century. His work demonstrates the conflicting, often contradictory, expectations of the parties concerned, and how these divergent expectations and preconceptions were successfully harmonised and evolved."--Bloomsbury Publishing

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

6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 160 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
