Approaching Latin American politics and government from a political science perspective, Politics in Latin America focuses on three unifying themes central to Latin America today--the challenges of development, liberty, and governance. These themes are fully and consistently integrated into the country studies, which examine seven important Latin American countries. The first four chapters provide a historical overview and describe the historical and theoretical importance of each of these challenges. Then each country study discusses the challenges as they pertain to that particular country. In the process of examining these three challenges, the text considers their implications for the future of democracy in the region.

Charles H. Blake is professor of political science at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia, where he teaches comparative politics, comparative public policy, and research methods. His research on the political economy of upper-income and middle-income societies has been published in a variety of journals including Comparative Political Studies, Democratization, and the Journal of Health Politics, Policy and Law, among others. The second edition of his Politics in Latin America: The Quests for Development, Liberty, and Governance will be published in 2008.
