  • Synopsis
    Recent developments in Europe have elicited assertions that the historical movement of the Left is at a standstil. The evidence from Latin America, however, suggests that the Left is far from being marginalized. In eight country studies, contributors examine the lessons drawn from the failure of guerilla strategies in the 1960s, the challenge to the traditional Left posed by the emergence of new social movements, and the new emphasis on demoncratic reforms over socioeconomic change. They also analyze how the Left has responded to the erosion of U.S. influence in the region and discuss whether the Left has benefited from the mobilizations and protests generated by IMF-imposed austerity programs. In a final section contributors explore issues of regional significance, including the trade union struggle and guerilla warfare, and evaluate prospects for the future.
