Brazil has one of the most elaborate social security systems in Latin America. This study follows the progressive evolution of social insurance policy from 1889 to 1979, through four alternating periods of democratic and authoritarian governments: oligarchic democracy, organic authoritarianism, populist democracy, and bureaucratic authoritarianism.
Since the mid-1960s it has been apparent that authoritarian regimes
are not necessarily doomed to extinction as societies modernize and
develop, but are potentially viable (if unpleasant) modes of
organizing a society's developmental efforts. This realization has
spurred new interest among social scientists in the phenomenon of
authoritarianism and one of its variants, corporatism.
The first book-length analysis of the Bolivian revolution by an American political scientist explains the events of 1952 as a Latin American case study, and links the theme of the revolution with other contemporary insurrections in underdeveloped countries. Combining narrative excitement and scholarly analysis, the book pinpoints sources of weakness and stress in the Bolivian old order, with particular attention to the effects of uneven economic developments in the first two decades of the twentieth century. It then focuses on the stormy years after 1936 that led up to the insurrection of April 9-11, 1952. Finally, it examines attempts of the revolutionary government to promote economic development between 1952 and November 1964, when it was overthrown.
Ten original essays discuss changes in the life, politics, and culture of Bolivia since the revolution of 1952.
Latin America in the 1980s was marked by the transition to
democracy and a turn toward economic orthodoxy. Unsettling
Statecraft analyzes this transition in Bolivia, Ecuador, and Peru,
focusing on the political dynamics underlying change and the many
disturbing tendencies at work as these countries shed military
authoritarianism for civilian rule.
