Summary:
This balanced and innovative collection uses different methodologies to approach the common theme of a region transformed in recent years by neoliberalism.  Most of the contributors suggest that Latin America is experiencing rapid and unexpected change: its future looks much different than ever predicted, with high levels of uncertainty resulting in counterintuitive and, at times, innovative political outcomes.
