About this book

This book offers a timely analysis, and a novel and nuanced argument about post-neoliberal models of regional governance in non-European contexts. It provides the first in-depth, empirically-driven analysis of current models of regional governance in Latin America that emerged out of the crisis of liberalism in the region. It contributes to comparative studies of the contemporary global political economy as it advances current literature on the topic by analysing distinctive, overlapping and conflicting trajectories of regionalism in Latin America. The book critically explores models of transformative regionalism and specific dimensions articulating those models beyond neoliberal consensus-building. As such it contests the overstated case of integration as converging towards global capitalism. It provides an analytical framework that not only examines the 'what, how, who and why' in the emergence of a specific form of regionalism but sets the ground for addressing two relevant questions that will push the study of regionalism further: What factors enable or constrain how transformative a given regionalism is (or can be) with respect to the powers and policies of states encompassed by it? and: What factors govern how resilient a given regionalism is likely to be under changing political and economic conditions?

 

 

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Examine how regional projects in the Americas are adapting, emerging and evolving independent of the hegemonic influence of the United States. … For scholars of inter-American affairs and regionalism this book serves as an important touchstone summarizing the current state of affairs in Latin America. … For the non-specialist and busy policy-maker … it provides a clear, concise and sophisticated survey of the major regional processes and challenges that matter. … should be read by generalists turning their attention to the Americas.” (Sean Burges, International Affairs, Vol. 89 (2), March, 2013)
