Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A must for Latin American specialists." —Choice
Booknews
Introducing a more comprehensive method of analysis involving a number of new ways to think about democracy, British academics and Bolivian former and current officials describe and evaluate recent changes in the South American country in both the economic and political spheres, and analyze the contribution of those changes to resolving long- standing problems. They consider the limitations and constraints on action, and offer recommendations about the sort of policy responses needed to deepen the democracy. Annotation c.
