About this book

The authors trace out the development of capitalism and U.S. imperialism in Latin America in the latest phase of this development, from the installation of the new world order of neoliberal globalization in the early 1980s to the present when U.S. imperialism is held at bay, neoliberalism is in decline, and capitalism is in crisis.

Reviews

"James Petras and Henry Veltmeyer continue to define the analytical paths that the rest will eventually follow." - Tom Brass, formerly of SPS Cambridge, and editor of The Journal of Peasant Studies

"Petras and Veltmeyer present, once more, a powerful and stimulating analysis of social struggles in Latin America. They combine a deep understanding of Latin American politics with a powerful commitment to social justice. Even readers who may not share all aspects of their class-based analysis will benefit greatly from their provocative insights." - Teivo Teivainen, Professor of World Politics, University of Helsinki
