Product description

Review

"Kingstone provides a broad review of key debates focusing on the challenge of achieving more equitable development in Latin America. In a notably even-handed way, he persuasively demonstrates that solutions will require an institutional infrastructure that strikes a balance between well functioning markets and well functioning states, avoiding past extremes of ‘too much market’ or ‘too much state.’"
Philip Oxhorn, McGill University

"This is the most authoritative account of Latin America’s political economy since the 1980s, analyzing the region’s Trojan efforts to find the proper balance between states and markets. The book summarizes the best research by scholars, without dumbing down any of the cited works or skipping any central debate. But the book goes farther. It also advances the argument that democracy and markets, far from rival goods, can actually reinforce one another, but only if certain institutions are in place. Readers who are new to this topic or experts on the subject will find much to gain from this book. This book will become a classic."
Javier Corrales, Amherst College

"For those teachers and students interested in Latin American political economy, Kingstone's book finally provides a first rate, sophisticated and clearly written analysis that has been lacking for a long time. The Political Economy of Latin America convincingly shows how various types of neo-conservative and state-led solutions to economic development tried from the 1980s up to now have consistently failed to address poverty, education and a host of other basic needs because they have ignored the central role that government and civil society institutions play in promoting growth with equity. "
