"...what seemed an auspicious moment for social democratic forces soon gave way in most countries to authoritarian repression, restrictions on the left, military coups and conservative consolidation. This illuminating volume analyzes why this occurred, concentrating on the interplay between domestic economic and social factors and the influence of U.S. policy." Foreign Affairs "...the eleven essays in this volume are remarkably even in their high quality...a valuable addition to the relatively sparse historical literature on the early Cold War years in Latin America."
