Marxism, socialism, and democracy in Latin America by Richard L Harris( Book )

7 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At a time when the validity of Marxism is being questioned because of the collapse of the Communist regimes in Eastern Europe, Richard Harris examines the relevance of Marxism and socialism for Latin America and the Caribbean. Dr. Harris discusses recent revolutionary regimes and attempts at socialist transformation in the region in terms of Marxist theory, comparing them with the historical experiences of the Soviet Union, China, Yugoslavia, and Vietnam. The author argues that Marxist theory offers a framework for understanding recent revolutionary transformations as well as the contradictions and limitations of existing democratic regimes in the region. Particular attention is given to revolutionary Cuba, the Allende administration in Chile, the Popular Revolutionary Government in Grenada, the Sandinista regime in Nicaragua, and contemporary leftist parties and movements throughout Latin America. He contends that democratization and the solution of the region's economic and social problems require a democratic socialist project

Globalization and post-apartheid South Africa( Book )

4 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume examines the progress made toward greater equality in South Africa in spite of the conflicting demands made by global capital and the population of South Africa on a weakened state structure. Investigating such issues as African identities in the cultural and historical context of globalization, growth and redistribution in South Africa, the social reintegration of demobilized military personnel, policing in the post-apartheid era, the poverty-environment relationship, and reproductive dynamics and gender-based violence, this volume provides interdisciplinary scholars and students with varied perspectives on the effects of globalization in post-apartheid South Africa. Each chapter offers original research and theory and, thus, Globalization and Post-Apartheid South Africa not only informs, but indicates possibilities for further research."--Jacket
