A unique combination of two major approaches, this reader is separated into two parts. Part I focuses on four central themes: democratization, economic development, social policy, and changing political actors. Each chapter in this follows a debate format, with complementary readings. Part II features six chapters focusing on particular countries or regions within Latin America, examining how the central themes discussed in Part I play out in each particular case. Articles on daily life in Latin American countries or regions provide immediacy and contextual details that more scholarly articles often lack. Each country chapter also includes one article from a more popular source native to that country, further familiarizing students with day-to-day life and contemporary culture.
