MEDIA REVIEWS
"A timely and important collection in the wake of new crosscurrents of globalization, when social movements are seeking institutional change, and human rights are being reappraised and questioned on many fronts."
-Kay Warren, co-editor of "Indigenous Movements, Self-Representation, and the State in Latin America
"This is a big, bountiful anthology that addresses the most pressing issues of social injustice and the movements that have responded to them in Latin America."
-June Nash, author of "Mayan Visions: The Quest for Autonomy in an Age of Globalization
"Susan Eckstein and Timothy Wickham-Crowley have put together a vastly illuminating collection on contemporary popular struggles in Latin America. The essays are excellent, empirically vivid, and analytically penetrating."
-Frances Fox Piven, co-author of "Poor Peoples' Movements: Why They Succeed, How They Fail
"A welcome and fairly cohesive sampling of a year's 'greatest hits' in Latin American studies.... what makes the volume important is that the distinct analytical lenses are used in ways that are fluid and accessible, as well as informative and convincing."
-Perspectives on Politics, December 2003
..."this book is a collection of histories, case studies and contemporary accounts that...can help activists and students to clarify and contextualize current struggles for social rights. At the same time, its 13 chapters can also be seen as a collection of generally well-written stories or tales than can be read alone, and which can provide the casual reader with interesting anectodal accounts of particular struggles.."
-Conexion Latina
