Blake (James Madison U.) focuses on the three quests most common to Latin America and the various political means individual democracies are using to repair the effects of poverty, injustice and dictatorship. After an overview of the notion of "politics" as it is interpreted in Latin America and a brief history, Blake covers the contexts of politics since 1980 and how the three quests have played out and continue to play out in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Cuba, Guatemala, Mexico and Venezuela, as well as the challenges and choices for these regions inherent in the new century. He includes activities and exercises for each chapter, lists of suggested readings and a glossary. The publisher offers a companion web site. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
