Analyzing the social consequences of recent development strategies in Latin America, this volume introduces readers to official strategies, private initiatives and individual responses to issues of welfare and poverty during the 20th century. These issues are addressed from several disciplines, using conventional economic data to interpret social change. An introduction is followed by a wide range of case studies, including Pinochet's Chile, the Haiti of the Duvaliers and Nicaragua under the Somocistas and Sandinistas, as well as Brazil, Mexico, the Argentine, Cuba and Columbia. Christopher Abel is co-editor with Nissa Torrents of "Jose Marti: Revolutionary Democrat".
