About this book

Two decades of neoliberalism in Latin America have left legacies of uneven growth, inequity and lackluster democracy. This book offers an original and grounded discussion of what governance after neoliberalism means in Latin America and examines how states are pursuing more independent development strategies and models of democracy.

Reviews

"The timing of this book's publication is spot-on. Grugel and Riggirozzi have compiled a collection on the political economy of Latin America which is surely among the most exciting and engaging to have appeared in recent years. But, more than that, it is one of the few volumes that has sought with rigor and sophistication to chart and make sense of the direction in which the region is now moving. Whether we can indeed consider ourselves to have arrived in a 'post-neoliberal' era is a question that will remain open for some time yet, but the essays collected here represent a striking milestone in the debate and deserve the widest attention." - Nicola Phillips, Professor of Politics, School of Social Sciences, University of Manchester

"In Governance after Neoliberalism, leading scholars look beyond the wreckage wrought by the Washington Consensus with penetrating analyses that combine attention to the major themes of democracy, citizenship, and market-restructuring while paying careful attention to the specificities of the political economies of the major Latin American countries. Grugel and Riggirozzi are to be particularly congratulated for their own excellent contributions probing the still inchoate contours of post-neoliberal projects for democratic governance in the region." - William C. Smith, Editor of Latin American Politics and Society, University of Miami

"The challenges to neoliberalism have emerged strongly over the last few years and require analysis. I think this rethinking of the state s role after neoliberalism will be a major contribution for students of Latin American Studies, policy makers, and general audiences." - Jenny Pearce, Professor of Latin American Politics, University of Bradford"A diverse set of regional and thematic studies to illuminate the nature of Latin American governance in the first millennium." - Latin American Politics and Society
