Governance after Neoliberalism in Latin America
edited by Jean Grugel and Pia Riggirozzi
This book analyses the proposals for development and post-neoliberal governance that are emerging in Latin America and look at the place of social and political inclusion, as well as economic growth, within them. Disscussions of the region’s economy cannot be meaningfully separated from a debate about its politics – and in particular, discussion of how social and political resources are distributed. This book discusses the possibilities and limitations of state activism and social/political inclusion after neoliberalism and the extent to which a common regional trend away from the neoliberal state can genuinely be discerned.
Modern Poetics and Hemispheric American Cultural Studies
by Justin Read
With the rise of globalization, the American hemisphere has been integrated economically and politically. But what is the role of culture in this new integration? To what extent do the Americas share a common culture? This book starts from the premise that cultural conflict is inherent to all American cultures. Thus, the only way to study national cultures hemispherically is to examine the inter-cultural collisions both between American nations, and within them. Through readings of key 20th century texts, Read argues that such conflicts form a distinctly poetic process.
Visual Synergies in Fiction and Documentary Film from Latin America

Cuban Medical Internationalism: Origins, Evolution and Goals
by John M Kirk and H Michael Erisman
While public health is important for revolutionary Cuba, providing medical services to the developing world is also a priority: 38,000 medical staff are engaged abroad; the largest medical school in the world (ELAM) has an enrollment of over 8,000 students from the Third World; and since 2004 over 1.3 million in Latin America and the Caribbean have had their eyesight restored.
How has this small nation of 11.3 million people managed to save more lives in the developing world than all of the G-8 countries together? And what are its motives? This book, the result of four years of research in Cuba, provides an updated analysis of this extraordinary record.
