Latin American countries have been characterized by more formal commitments to democracy and greater political stability over the past decade, note Gustafson (political science, U. of Virginia) and Pattnayak (sociology, Villanova U.), but still face significant economic, social, and political challenges. They present nine papers that aim to provide an overview of recent experience and current trends, offering discussions of such topics as the political culture of democracy and liberalism, economic liberalization and social inequality, and the role of civil society. Three chapters explore national developments in Mexico, Chile, and Argentina. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
