Summary Latin America after the Neoliberal Debacle looks at the sharply declining legitimacy of liberal democracies in the region and the new array of popular forces working for social transformation. In particular, the authors analyze the failure of neoliberal policies and the growing demand for expanding participatory democracy and achieving more genuine regional cooperation. This interdisciplinary study will be useful for students, scholars, and general readers concerned with how past and present policies shape the future of this important region of the world.
