The Oxford Handbook of Latin American Political Economy

Edited by Javier Santiso and Jeff Dayton-Johnson

Oxford Handbooks

  • Political economy is not a new way of looking at Latin American development, but this handbook brings together and extends recent work that looks at new trends -- democratic consolidation, macro stability, Asian trading partners -- that earlier authors did not.
  • Political economy is all about "trespassing" between economics and political science, according to A.O. Hirschman. This book draws upon a new type of trespassing -- the academic expert who has also been a top policy maker (e.g. president, minister of finance). Many of this new breed contribute here, reflecting on the rough and tumble world of policy reform.
