From Our Editors

Argentina has been modernizing at breakneck speed since the country's transition to democracy. Yet the nation never has reached the level of greatness for which it seems to have been destined. This collection looks at the modernization process and includes several articles by Argentine politicians and policymakers. "Argentina: The Challenges of Modernization" analyzes the difficulties the country faces in the 1990s, over a decade after the restoration of democracy and several years after the end of the Cold War. The profound economic, political, and social changes taking place are examined in detail. Alterations in public finance, decentralization, privatization, and the need to adapt to technological advances and global trading patterns are also discussed. This text is an excellent supplement for courses in Latin American studies, particularly those focusing on Argentina

Editorial Reviews

This book marks the most comprehensive and successful effort to date to eavluate the transitions set in motion since Argentina's return to democracy in 1983.
