The rise and fall of repression in Chile by Pablo Policzer( )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 974 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Rise and Fall of Repression in Chile, Pablo Policzer tackles the difficult task of analyzing how authoritarian regimes utilize coercion. Even in relatively open societies, coercive institutions such as the police and military tend to be secretive and mistrustful of efforts by outsiders to oversee their operations. In more closed societies, secrecy is the norm, making coercion that much more difficult to observe and understand. Drawing on organization theory to develop a comparative typology of coercive regimes, Policzer analyzes the structures and mechanisms of coercion in general and then shifts his focus to the early part of the military dictatorship in Chile, which lasted from 1973 to 1990. Policzer's book sheds new light on a fundamental, yet little-examined, period during the Chilean dictatorship. Between 1977 and 1978, the governing junta in Chile quietly replaced the secret police organization known as the Dirección de Informaciones Nacional (DINA) with a different institution, the Central Nacional de Informaciones (CNI). Policzer provides the first systematic account of why the DINA was created in the first place, how it became the most powerful repressive institution in the country, and why it was suddenly replaced with a different organization, one that carried out repression in a markedly more restrained manner. Policzer shows how the dictatorship's reorganization of its security forces intersected in surprising ways with efforts by human rights watchdogs to monitor and resist the regime's coercive practices. He concludes by comparing these struggles with how dictatorships in Argentina, East Germany, and South Africa organized coercion."--Publisher's description

Judicial reform as political insurance : Argentina, Peru, and Mexico in the 1990s by Jodi S Finkel( )

11 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 716 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the 1990s, judicial reform swept Latin America. Why do some instances of judicial reform appear lead to the development of a powerful judiciary while others have failed to do so? In her careful analysis, Finkel shows that while ruling parties can be induced to initiate judicial reforms (constitutional revisions), they often prove unwilling to implement these constitutional changes (by enacting required legislation). However, ruling parties that believe they are unlikely to maintain political power have a strong rationale for implementing meaningful judicial reform as an "insurance policy." Finkel's research suggests that as the ruling party's probability of reelection declines, the likelihood of reforms that result in an empowered judiciary increases."--BOOK JACKET
The success of the left in Latin America : untainted parties, market reforms, and voting behavior by María del Rosario Queirolo( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 663 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why, since the beginning of the twenty-first century, have so many Latin American countries elected governments identifying themselves with the ideological Left? In The Success of the Left in Latin America: Untainted Parties, Market Reforms, and Voting Behavior, Rosario Queirolo argues that the "pink tide" that swept across Latin America beginning in the late 1990s--with the election of a growing number of leftist political candidates to public office--was caused by the intent of voters to punish political parties unable to improve the economic well-being of their electorates. She argues that Latin Americans vote based on performance, ousting those whom they perceive as responsible for economic downturns, and ushering into power those in the "untainted opposition," which has been the Left in most Latin American countries. Queirolo argues that the effects of neoliberal economic reforms did not produce more votes for political parties on the Left. Rather, the key variable is unemployment. Left-leaning parties in Latin America increase their electoral chances when unemployment is high. In addition to explaining recent electoral successes of leftist parties, The Success of the Left in Latin America also undermines a dominant scholarly view of Latin Americans as random and unpredictable voters by showing how the electorate at the polls holds politicians accountable. 'Rosario Queirolo's The Success of the Left in Latin America: Untainted Parties, Market Reforms, and Voting Behavior makes a valuable contribution to the study of Latin American politics and of comparative politics more generally. Queirolo makes a compelling argument that the general shift to the Left in Latin America was less a straightforward protest against neoliberal policies but more strongly a reaction to negative economic performance. Enriched with extensive survey data, her book is authoritative and persuasive."--Elizabeth J. Zechmeister"--Del editor

Religious responses to violence : human rights in Latin America past and present by Alexander Wilde( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though its societies and economies have undergone sweeping changes, high levels of violence have remained a persistent problem in Latin America. This book offers resources to understand how religion has perceived and addressed different forms of violence, from the political and state violence of the 1970s and 1980s to the drug traffickers and youth gangs of today. In contrast to many other studies of violence, this book explores its moral dimensions and the real consequences of human agency.--

"This thorough discussion of "democracies with truncated citizenship" in Latin America depicts and considers overcoming various kinds of violence and discrimination and analyzes various avenues to institutional judicial reform. The main conclusion, reached after detailed analyses of various kinds of issues and underprivileged groups, is that the democratic rule of law is both a worthy and difficult goal still to be achieved."--Jacket

"Needs of the Heart traces five centuries of conflict and change in the life of the clergy in Brazil, home to the world's largest and arguably the most dynamic branch of the Roman Catholic Church. Serbin examines how priests participated in the colonization of Brazil, educated the elite and poor in the faith, propped up the socioeconomic status quo, and reinforced the institution of slavery, all the while living in relative freedom from church authority."--BOOK JACKET
