The Right and Democracy in Latin America

Synopsis

The fundamental purpose of this volume is to consider the Latin American "Right" and the movement within that region toward democracy. It asks the basic questions that the "Right" must itself ask: What are the essential characteristics of the "Right" and how can the "Right" move into democratic processes? Can the "Right" build the necessary coalitions? Has it a valuable perspective to bring to governance and economic planning? With detailed attention to the lessons that individual countries offer because of their special problems moving toward democracy, this book provides a review of the past and current state of evolving democracy in Latin America.
