Faces of Latin America 3rd Edition
A timely update of the most authoritative and popular textbook currently available on the region in the UK, this third edition of our bestselling title outlines the recent exciting developments of the most dynamic region in the developing world. The resurgence of left-wing politics, the continuing struggle between indigenous peoples and the interests of global capital, on-going environmental struggles which have major implications for the rest of the world - all described in Green's accessible and authoritative style. This third edition has been extensively updated and enlarged, with new sections on indigenous protest and social movements, the environment, democratisation, corruption, and the rise of the new left.
