This major new reference surveys political parties of importance in the Americas since 1980, with the exclusion of the United States. This one-volume work has been fashioned both to update Robert J. Alexander's prize-winning two-volume set published in 1982, Political Parties of the Americas, and to serve as a new analysis of political development and political parties in 49 countries in the Western Hemisphere during the last decade. Ameringer, with contributions by a score of well-known scholars, covers parties of importance and current political trends. Includes chronology, cross-references, and a full index.
