Market, State, and Society in Contemporary Latin America explores fundamental issues in the political economy of the region in the early twenty–first century. The chapters in this volume deploy a variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives to understand the recent transformations in relations among market, state, and society in Latin American countries. Based on careful empirical research, the contributors go beyond popular state–centric explanations of economic policy–making in the region, emphasizing the centrality of state–society bargaining in the design and implementation of market–oriented restructuring. By the same token, the chapters in
Market, State and Society also challenge simplistic argument about state decline, demonstrating the crucial role of differing configurations of domestic actors, interests and institutions in mediating the effects of globalization on welfare regimes, labor politics, and popular contestation.
