This balanced and innovative collection uses different methodologies to approach the common theme of a region transformed in recent years by neoliberalism. Most of the contributors suggest that Latin America is experiencing rapid and unexpected change: its future looks much different than ever predicted, with high levels of uncertainty resulting in counterintuitive and, at times, innovative political outcomes.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"In this timely collection, Lopez-Alves and Johnson bring together a seasoned team of sociologists, political scientists, historians, and linguists to explore the multiple impacts and consequences of uncertainty as one of the most noticeable aspects of globalization in Latin America today. The varied chapters show that uncertainty has not been eliminated as globalization has proceeded, but rather extends well beyond concerns about the future of the economy and is now shaping culture, society, and politics in the region. Simply put, it one of the most important variables in understanding Latin America's tumultuous integration into the new globalized order. The authors have done the scholarly and policy communities a great service by bringing to our attention the central role that uncertainly plays in the region."

- William I. Robinson, Professor of Sociology and Latin American Studies, University of California at Santa Barbara"This edited volume is a state-of-the-art contribution to some of the most intriguing queries about Latin America's unprecedented levels of uncertainty. In a scholarly-documented way, it exposes the effects of neoliberal policies, which in several countries have concentrated income and eroded the rule of law. Globalization's promise of stability and growth has gone largely unfulfilled. Here are some of the reasons why." - Carlos Escude, Director, Centro de Estudios Internacionales y de Educacion para la Globalizacion (CEIEG), Universidad del CEMA, Buenos Aires"The authors make a significant contribution to globalization scholarship by shifting emphasis to Latin America; this will lead to a rethinking of the field."

- Zita Nunes, Assistant Professor of English, University of Maryland"This is a very good, timely book that will add to the theory of globalization and the literature on the effects of globalization... Highly recommended." - CHOICE
