Military rule in Latin America



The first part of the book provides a broad overview of military rule in Latin America, asking what the political and economic consequences of military rule are, and investigating the factors which shape the functioning, dynamics and outcomes of military regimes. The role of institutional forces and state actors are explicitly addressed. The second part is a detailed case study of Chile under the Pinochet regime, showing how social class forces and institutional structures interacted to produce a durable and personal regime with an unusually profound social impact. The final chapter explores the shift away from authoritarianism in Latin America during the late 1970s and speculates on the course of future political events. -from Author
