1 - 2 weeks availability
Highlighting eleven different topics in separate chapters, the thematic approach of Latin American Politics offers students the conceptual tools they need to analyze the political systems of all twenty Latin American nations. Such a structure makes the book self-consciously comparative, allowing students to become stronger analysts of comparative politics and better political scientists in general.
David Close is Professor of Political Science at Memorial University in St. John's, Newfoundland. He is the author of Nicaragua: The Chamorro Years (Lynne Reinner Publishers, 1999) and is co-author with Eric Mintz and Osvaldo Croci of Politics, Power and the Common Good: An Introduction to Political Science, second edition (Pearson, 2009).
