DescriptionContentsAuthors

A wealth of country-level socioeconomic data and individual historical
trajectories come together in this volume to show us a region where a novel
development strategy may be in the making. Emerging from the
developmentalism and neoliberalism experiences of the last century, the
twenty-first century Latin American developmental welfare state model is
based on a new public-private alliance, where state-led developmental
social policy relies for its implementation mainly on proactive, emerging,
regional entrepreneurs and a growing middle class. These groups, together
with a renewed public sector, seem poised to lead the development prospects
of the region and its peoples in the new century.
