About this book

In the 1990s, 'protection', 'import substitution' and 'intervention' have become dirty words, part of the 'leyenda negra' of Latin America development in the postwar period. This book attempts a fresh look at the controversial years between the end of the Second World War and the point when, at varying dates in different countries, a discontinuity occurs in which the postwar 'style of development' ceased to play a central role in the economic evolution of the region. The analysis is based on seven case studies covering eleven countries.

Reviews

'This is a remarkable project, bringing together the world's leading authorities in the field and some of the best of a rising generation, with a gratifyingly strong representation of Latin American scholarship. The combination of lucid survey chapters with sectoral and national case histories is unique in its quality and scale.' - James Dunkerly

In Industrialisation and the State, Thorp and her co-authors explain

dispassionately the evolution of the Latin American economies during

inward-looking development. Recognising the complexity of the period and the

region, this volume helps to puncture many of the myths that surround both

the rise of industry in Latin America and the role of the state in promoting

development.' Professor Victor Bulmer, University of London

'...this large collaborative effort will prove worthwhile to a very wide audience.' - Gail Triner, Latin American Research Review

'...a useful and concise source of background information on the economic histories of specific countries...' - Gail D. Triner, Enterprise & Society
