Editorial Reviews

Democratic Latin America is without peer. Joining concepts with country cases, it is the only book to examine democratic practices in the region from the vantage point of political institutions. Impeccably researched and stylishly written, Democratic Latin America is the perfect teaching tool to capture the attention and imagination of undergraduate students.”—David Pion-Berlin, University of California at Riverside
