The Changing Role of the State in Latin America

Synopsis

Since the 1930s the state has played a primary role in the development process of Latin American countries, & political systems have had strong corporatist & authoritarian-centralist features. In the last several years, as that role has become increasingly incompatible with neoliberal reforms & the requirements of a transition to democracy, state power has been significantly decentralized, & the state has withdrawn from direct intervention in the economy. This book examines the consequences of the redefinition of the state for processes of democratization & state-civil society relations.
