The former Americas editor for the Economist, Reid suggests that much of Central and South America, though less poor, less unequal, and better educated than before, faces harder economic times now that the commodities boom of the 2000s is over.

This essential new edition provides important insights into the sweeping changes that have occurred in Latin America in recent years and indicates priorities for the future"--"@en ;
