Deepening Democracy in Latin America
von Mettenheim, Kurt, Malloy, James
Ten leading scholars of the region present original research to argue that theories of democratic consolidation or institutionalization are too often Euro- and ethno-centric; that simple appeals for greater participation are insufficient; and that recent critics of populism, patronage, and presidentialism fail to capture new opportunities for democracies in the region.

Kurt von Mettenheim is professor of political sociology, chair of the Social and Legal Sciences Department, and faculty member in the doctoral Program in Public Administration and Government at the Getulio Vargas Foundation São Paulo Business School (Escola de Administração de Empresas de São Paulo, Fundação Getulio Vargas, FGV-EASP), Brazil.
James M. Malloy is professor emeritus of political science at the University of Pittsburgh.
“The strength of the contributors’ country studies exploring institutional change and national political context is enough alone to recommend this volume; in addition to contributing to the theoretical propositions being advanced by von Mettenheim and Malloy, recent historical antecedents for the current state of democracy in Mexico, Venezuela, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Brazil, Argentina, and Uruguay are clearly explained.” —International Affairs

“At the individual and collective level, the papers identify the critical problems for democratic politics in Latin America.”---The British Bulletin of Publications, April 2001
