The shift from state-led to market-oriented, neoliberal economic policies has been one of the most important changes in the developing world during the last two decades. Although much existing research has focused on why countries choose these neoliberal policy reforms and how they implement them, Richard Snyder's study offers an analysis of politics after neoliberalism. The book proposes a framework that explains how neoliberal reforms, rather than unleashing market forces, actually trigger 're-regulation' processes involving strategic interactions between political entrepreneurs and societal groups. Depending on the strengths and strategies of politicians and societal groups, reregulation results in different types of new institutions for market governance with contrasting consequences for economic efficiency and social justice. This framework is used in conjunction with an innovative subnational comparative method to analyze evidence from four Mexican states about the politics of reregulation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Numerous studies have been conducted on the consequences of the economic deregulation, but ew possess the analytical clarity, methodological rigor, and theoretical sophistication of Richard Synder's Politics after Neoliberalism. American Journal of Sociology
"This is a useful account of subnational political economy that also provides insight into the PRI's varied responses to diverse cross-pressures during the 1980's and the 1990's. Recommended for advaced undergraduates and above." Choice
"This is an important book that deserves to be read by students of comparative political economy and Latin American and Mexican politics." American Political Science Review
"...theoretically and empirically interesting and important." Political Science Quarterly
"As a whole, this book is a model of how to do comparative politics.... The empirical complexity and the highly nuanced nature of his main argument form an inspiring departure from over-simplified, one-dimensional analyses. Consequently, his study answers many questions but asks many more, some of which the author himself discusses in the final chapter. That is a mark of first-rate scholarship. Politics After Neoliberalism will rapidly become a classic in the comparative political economy literature, a work that will be required reading for graduate students and scholars interested in the politics of post-neoliberalism, the developing world, and the subnational comparative method." Latin American Politics and Society
"The subnational comparative case-study approach used by Richard Snyder in Politics after Neoliberalism is perhaps the best example of this kind of work currently available." Latin American Research Review
