MEDIA REVIEWS
This book is essential for any student or policy-maker looking to solve the puzzle of economic development in Latin America. Why, after trying the full gamut of economic reforms, has the region had lackluster economic growth, frequent financial instability, persistent inequality, accentuated social conflict, and acute environmental degradation relative to other developing regions across the world? Franko's fourth edition is a student and battle-tested guide to the history, economics, politics, and institutional factors that surround Latin American economic policy-making that equips the reader with the perspective needed to learn from the past and forge a better future. -- Kevin Gallagher, Boston University
This thoroughly updated edition of Patrice Franko's text is most welcome. I have used previous editions successfully both in advanced undergraduate economics courses and in graduate-level Latin American courses drawing students from diverse disciplines, with minimal economics background. The book has just the right balance of quantitative material and engaging examples of the dilemmas of Latin American development from the perspective of its peoples. -- Carmen Diana Deere, University of Florida
Patrice Franko's thorough examination of Latin America's economic evolution in the post-Cold War era sheds light on the puzzle of hope and frustration she expertly describes. This masterly book, now in its fourth edition, remains mandatory reading for those interested in understanding the world's most unequal region. -- Paulo Sotero, Brazil Institute, Wilson Center
