This anthology offers the first serious, broad-ranging collection of English translations of significant Latin American contributions to social and political thought spanning the last forty years. Ivan Marquez has judiciously selected narratives of resistance and liberation; ground-breaking texts in Latin American fields of inquiry such as liberation theology, philosophy, pedagogy, and dependency theory; and important readings in guerrilla revolution, socialist utopia, and post-Cold War thought, especially in the realms of democracy and civil society, alternatives to neoliberalism, and nationalism in the context of globalization. Highlighting the vitality, diversity, and originality of Latin American thought, this anthology will be invaluable for students and scholars across the social sciences and humanities.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Ivan Marquez has gathered in this book a wide range of excerpts from diverse Latin American contributions to social and political thought. He offers to the English-speaking audience of teachers and students a valuable sourcebook of key works by Latin American intellectuals, politicians, and activists. * Hispanic American Historical Review *
Latin America's process of political maturation has left an amazing, rich, and venerable inheritance of political thinking. Ivan Marquez has gathered in this wonderful anthology some of the most distinctive and original Latin American political and social thinking. This book is an indispensable resource for teachers and students alike. -- Eduardo Mendieta, Professor of Philosophy, Pennsylvania State University
Marquez's book fills a significant gap in the growing literature on social and political thought in Latin America. Instead of retraveling the usual paths of traditional neoliberalism and orthodox Marxism, he has compiled an impressive group of texts from voices seldom heard, and if heard, frequently forgotten. This is an indispensable source for the college curriculum. -- Jorge J. E. Gracia, SUNY Buffalo
This anthology is a fine sourcebook for crucial political instances within the continent. I highly recommend it for Spanish majors. -- Luis P. Ramos-Garcia, University of Minnesota
