(p.145) 8 An Overview of Latin America
Democracy, Agency, and the State

Guillermo O'Donnell (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins by clarifying that this study provides only a rather quick overview of Latin America, intended to provide a comparative context to the book, not a detailed study of the present state of democracy in this region, something that the author intends to undertake in future work. Some of the specific characteristics of these democracies, both achievements and flaws, are underlined.

Keywords:   Latin America, the state, inequality, delegative democracy, judiciary, congress, police, mistrust, social movements
