DESCRIPTION

The nations of Latin America and the Caribbean experienced far-reaching change in the decade of the 1990s, as the region's democracies shifted toward new economic models based on increased openness and market principles.

Addressing the challenges that subsequently emerged, this collection explores issues ranging from globalization, democratization, and economic change, to the environment and health care.
