Overview

Dispatches charts Latin America’s aspirations and challenges.

From the laboratory of neoliberalism—popularly known as "globalization" —Latin America has transformed itself into a launching pad for resistance. As globalization began to spread its devastation, robust and thoughtful opposition emerged in response—in the recovered factory movement of Argentina, in the presidential elections of indigenous leaders and radicals like Hugo Chavez and Evo Morales, against the privatization of water in Bolivia. Across Latin America, people are building social movements to take back control of their countries and their lives.

Dispatches from Latin America reports on countries from Mexico to Argentina to map the contemporary political and social territory. Drawn from the pages of the well-respected NACLA Report, this collection offers a riveting series of accounts that bring new insight into the region’s struggles and victories.

With shrewd analysis rendered in accessible language, Dispatches lays plain the complex and vitally important conditions unfolding in 21st-century Latin America.

Praise for Dispatches

“After suffering half a century of vicious military dictatorship and state terror, and the disaster of rigid adherence to the neoliberal doctrines of the "Washington consensus," Latin America has undergone remarkable changes that offer real hope for a better future. Among the most promising signs are the dynamic mass movements that have engaged the traditionally marginalized and repressed majorities in political and social life as nowhere else, with popular assemblies, worker-run factories, participatory budgets, grassroots political activism, and much more. 

The informed and penetrating in-depth studies that appear in Dispatches explore the complex variety of popular initiatives that are taking shape, their achievements and prospects, in what has become perhaps the most exciting region of the world.”

 NOAM CHOMSKY —author of Failed States and Turning the Tide: US Intervention in Central America

Praise for NACLA "NACLA's Report is an indispensable resource for us as readers, citizens, writers and editors."

VICTOR NAVASKY — publisher of The Nation  

"It's a magazine I always grab in a crisis, since it has often been ahead in analyzing and interpreting political trends in Latin America and in Washington."

SEYMOUR HERSH — Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist
"NACLA is an indispensable resource for those of us living in the borderlands. NACLA has always made sense of the senseless, tried to right wrongs, cast light on the shadows.  It is a priceless bridge across the borders that continue to separate the peoples of the Americas."

RUBÉN MARTÍNEZ — Salvadoran-Mexican journalist and author of Crossing Over

"I would be thrown for a serious loss if I had to make sense of the news from Latin America without having NACLA Report for guidance."

JOHN WOMACK, JR. — professor of Latin American history and economics, Harvard University
