The State of Democracy in Latin America presents a critical analysis of the contemporary democratic state in Latin America.

In a shift away from the more typical analyses of Latin American political change during the 1990s, this book presents a more state-centric perspective that seeks to explain why transitions to democracy and trends towards better governance have failed to provide more political and social stability in the continent. Through a deeper analysis of underlying social relations and values and how these manifest themselves through institutions, the state is understood not purely as an institutional form but rather as a set of interdependent relations that are shaped by particular collective and individual interests.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The State of Democracy in Latin America is an ambitious work that should be widely discussed for the implications of its central arguements concerning the contradiction between the egalitarian promise of democracy and the neoliberal state.'

-Latin American Studies, Volume 38-2006

'I for one, am thankful for a book that forcefully places a socio-economic egalitarianism at the centre of debates over democracy with rich implications for theories of the state.' -Eduardo Silva, University of Missouri- St Louis
