An eloquent Latin American political scientist offers an incisive, brilliantly informed look at the legacies of Castro, Allende, the Sandinistas, and others--and explainsraordinary. . . . Attempts to do nothing less than restore direction to the Latin American left."--Los Angeles Times Book Review.
Posted March 11, 2000
Castaneda includes a brief but well written history of the left in question, and provides a series of mutually reinforcing and politically practical methods for a sound leftist program being followed by parties such as the PRD and current Chilean President Ricardo Lagos. This book is stimulating to all those questioning the left after the fall of the Soviet Union. A must read for all Latin Americanists. For opposing leftist view points see James Petras's The Left Strikes Back, McCaughan's Reinventing Revolution, LAP book series The Latin American Left: From the Fall of Allende to Perestroika, and Latin America Faces the Twenty-First Century: Constructing a Social Justice Agenda
