My dissertation seeks to explain under what conditions some leftist parties in Latin American democracies transform into catch-all, electoral-professional parties, and, conversely, under what conditions others fail to adapt and remain radical, niche-oriented parties. My case studies are Brazil's Partido dos Trabalhadores, Uruguay's Frente Amplio, Venezuela's Causa Radical, and Peru's Izquierda Unida.
