This is an examination of the social structures that shape Latin American societies. Knowledge of demography, rural and urban life, and ethnic and status relationships is critical for understanding the political and economic fabric of those societies. Although the author draws on materials from all the social sciences, the primary frame of reference is sociological. The book presents, in an organized form, the findings from an ever-growing number of studies about Latin American society.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Williamson..has written a present-day analysis of the 20 or so Ibero-American republics (including Haiti). His book is an excellently researched work and a good source of analytical data on the region....The author uses an approach that seeks to integrate theoretical and classical sociological paradigms with specific analyses of various Ibero-American republics. Given the current overall state of political and economic crisis in these countries, the author has focused on a number of associated factors, such as intransigence of elites, faulty infrastructure, and counterproductive development strategies from within and outside the region. Williamson also seeks to delineate commonalities as well as contrasts among the countries studied. A worthy addition to sociological interpretations of Ibero-American dilemmas."-Choice
