Cannon and Kirby's fine collection of essays fills a significant gap in the literature on new left governments in Latin America. The volume's systematic comparative analysis on changing state-civil society relationships in this new and evolving political context is a must read for all who follow Latin American politics. * Eduardo Silva, Tulane University *
This volume is crucial not only for understanding the political dynamics of current Latin America: it also calls attention to the potential democratizing impact that current civil society struggles might have in shaping the developmental agenda of the recently inaugurated post-neoliberal period. This is required reading for all of those who want to make sense of the significant political and economic changes that the region has experienced in recent decades. * Enrique Peruzzotti, Universidad Torcuato di Tella, Buenos Aires *
Much more than a collection of essays, this is a coherent, informative, analytical and very readable exploration of Latin America's "left turn" and what it means for the region's states, civil societies and economies in the early decades of the twenty-first century. * Jenny Pearce, Professor of Latin American Politics, Director of International Centre for Participation Studies *
The editors are to be congratulated for making an important contribution to the literature on the new left in Latin America. The collection brings together an impressive set of case studies in participatory democracy, popular protest and resistance politics, all framed nicely through the lens of state-civil society relations. All are good, but the section on extractivism is particularly novel. * Professor Jean B. Grugel, University of Sheffield *
