Beginning with a brief history of Latin America since 1492, John Ward discusses the interactions between economic, political and social issues. The discussions includes: the long-term background to the 1980s debt crisis the effects of neo-liberal free market reforms relations with the United States and the wider world welfare provision in relation to wider economic issues social trends as reflected by changes in the status of women globalization and environmental debates comparisons with the more dynamic East Asian economies.
