Fall 2006 not offered
|Certificates: International Relations|
This course explores democratization, revolution, and poverty in Latin America, with special attention to Argentina, Brazil, Cuba, and Nicaragua. Questions to be addressed include: Why does Argentina lurch periodically from free-wheeling democracy to murderous military rule? Why is authoritarianism usually less harsh -- but democracy often more shallow -- in Brazil than in Argentina? How democratic are Latin America's new democracies? Why did post-revolutionary Cuba wind up with a more centrally-planned economy and a more authoritarian political system than post-revolutionary Nicaragua? Which Latin American countries have been most successful at poverty reduction, and what accounts for their success?
