This book is the first attempt at systematic analysis and comparison on the resurgence of left wing in Latin America in recent years.
The authors are some of the most outstanding regional social scientists, members of a network of investigation and continental discussion about the new Latin American left wing. The book offers case studies on the leftist parties and movements of Brazil, Uruguay, Venezuela, Colombia, and Argentina. It also includes studies on the most important regional social movements including the indigenous movements, the Ecuadorian and Bolivian peasant movements, the Argentinean ‘piquetero’ movement and the Mexican Zapatista movement.
