Description

Populism in Latin America is comprised of eight chapters written by specialists, covering the populist experiences in major Latin American nations, plus a preface, introduction, and analytical chapter on neo-populism. It ranges from the early 20th century pioneers in the Southern Cone to the most recent figures, including Hugo Chávez, Rafael Caldera, and Lula da Silva. Most attention focuses on the classic populists like Juan and Evita Perón, Haya de la Torre, Velasco Ibarra, and Lázaro Cárdenas. The authors conclude that although the heyday of populism may have passed in the region, it is likely to recur due to its deep roots in the national cultures.
