Leftist Governments in Latin America is the first book to systematically examine the policies and performance of left-wing governments that have risen to power in Latin America during the last decade. Featuring thorough studies of Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, and Venezuela by renowned experts, the volume argues that moderate leftist governments have attained a greater, more sustainable success than their more radical, contestatory counterparts.
