Studies in the formation of the nation-state in Latin America ( Book )
3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 273 libraries worldwide
"This book embraces a variety of disciplinary, thematic and country-based approaches to the complex and contested issues around the character of the nation-state in Latin America from the early nineteenth century. In recent years there has been a great deal of scholarly interest in this topic from the viewpoint of cultural and literary studies, but Latin America remains under-represented in general historical and sociological theories of nationhood." "The collection is derived from a range of analytical and stylistic approaches, seeking to develop debate and research on the topic through case-studies (including Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, Peru and Spain), historiographical review, and themes such as the role of violence, military conscription and pensions, money and the role of finance, early notions of development, the ambiguous role of liberalism, and how to evaluate the reach and qualities of the nation-state."--BOOK JACKET

Brazil since 1985 : politics, economy and society ( Book )
3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 254 libraries worldwide
Looking into Brazil's experience of democracy is an arduous undertaking, given the complexities of a country of continental size and great regional contrasts, where areas of prosperity and wealth mingle with underdevelopment and poverty. This book looks at some of the important issues involved in building up a democracy? To what extent has the emergence of a democratic regime improved Brazilians' social, economic and political life? Has democracy been consolidated to the point of making a political breakdown unthinkable or improbable? These are questions that any student of Brazil has to address. The answers to them, however, are far from simple

Mexico and the North American Free Trade Agreement : who will benefit? ( Book )
5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 155 libraries worldwide
By joining in a free trade agreement with Canada and the United States, Mexico has become the first independent developing country to be integrated with developed countries. While Mexico is expected to derive net benefits from this arrangement, it is clear that there will be losers as well as gainers. In addition, the evercloser integration between Mexico and the rest of North America carries implications for Mexico's relationship with the rest of the world. All of these changes must be managed within a political system which has traditionally resolved such pressures in a relatively authoritarian way. This book explores the economic as well as socio-political dimensions of the changes expected in Mexico and the question whether economic liberalisation will necessarily lead to political liberalisation
