Note
Reviews "This cohesive volume provides a comprehensive analysis of recent trends away from democratization. It is written by the top scholars in the field and does an excellent job of looking at topics from both the perspective of the North and that of the South. Unlike other treatments, which focus narrowly on state institutions, this volume goes far beyond that limited perspective and includes such important issues as political culture, populism, crime, corruption, civil-military relations, human rights, the media, and more. A must read for scholars, students, and policy makers." --Mitchell A. Seligson, Centennial Professor of Political Science, and Director of the AmericasBarometer, Vanderbilt University "This timely volume addresses the most relevant issues for Latin American democracies today: presidential institutions and the rule of law, women's and indigenous rights, the role of mass media and the exposure of corruption, crime-control and the new roles of the military, populism and the emergence of progressive leftist governments, and the impact of globalization and US policies. Millett, Holmes, and Pérez have produced an ambitious book and a valuable resource for the classroom." --Aníbal S. Pérez-Liñán, University of PittsburghAvailable from: 2008-11-11 Created: 2008-11-11 Last updated: 2018-01-13Bibliographically approved
