Product Description


Petras and Veltmeyer in their study of recent economic and political developments in four other South American countries considers the political and economic developments in each country in the light of the increasing prominence of the left and the extent to which challenges to the neo-liberalism of the International Monetary Fund had been successful. Using Chavez's victory in Venezuela to set the context, the American based academics review the presidencies of Kirchner in Argentina, as well as developments in Bolivia. The book assumes considerable knowledge of the contemporary economics and politics of each country. The conclusion to their analysis is that 'a radical politics of mass mobilization is an indispensable condition for advancing the struggle for social change - to bring a new world of social justice and real development based on popular power. In practice it is necessary to combine both electoral and mass revolutionary politics. (Duncan Bowie, Chartist)
