POLS 4208: Politics of Latin American Development (3)
Lecture: 3, Lab: 0, Other: 0
Latin American countries share a common past of colonialism, war, poverty, authoritarianism, political instability and foreign intervention. They differ, however, in the way they have tried to deal with this legacy. Although more attention will be dedicated to understanding their collective experiences since 1945, this course examines the struggle for political and economic development from the time they became independent to the present.
