LACS 51 Latin American Politics

This course is an introduction to the political development and the current context of politics in Latin America.  It combines examination of the region as a whole with material on the politics of specific countries.  The central theme of the course is to evaluate the challenges of establishing democracy in the region.  We consider the impact of political culture, populism, economic development, the ‘curse’ of natural resources, guerrillas and narco-traffickers, and the legacies of military rule and revolutionary regimes on contemporary Latin American politics.
