First published in English in 1990 as Latin American Politics: A Theoretical Framework, a translation of Torcuato S. Di Tella's original Sociologia de los procesos politicos, this new edition also focuses on the prerequisites for democracy in any society and on the role of the popular classes in social change. Di Tella draws on the work of Montesquieu, Burke, Tocqueville, Marx, Weber, and Durkheim in formulating his explanatory theories. These theories are then tested against crucial events in Latin American history-from the rebellions of the eighteenth century to the caudillos of the nineteenth century and the militarism of the twentieth century. This edition is more attuned to an English-speaking audience, with a new chapter addressing the historical process in Argentina from the 1930s to the present. Latin American Politics is written in a style easily accessible to the general reader or student, while its emphasis on the growth of democracy in Latin America makes it particularly timely.
