Bringing together contributions from a multi-disciplinary and international group of experts, this volume explores the effects and legacies of Argentina's 2001-2002 social, economic, and political implosion. Interrogating the nature and effects of the crisis, the contributors reject the dichotomy of 'old' and 'new'; instead, they argue that responses to the crisis and the factors that precipitated the crisis are a combination of pre-existing and emerging problems, many of them ones that were perceptible in the 1990s and earlier. The multi-disciplinary analysis has implications beyond Argentina. This volume is essential reading for researchers, students, and policymakers interested in crisis, responses to it, and subsequent processes of recovery.
