The Politics of Market Reform in Fragile Democracies:
Argentina, Brazil, Peru, and Venezuela
Kurt Weyland

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"This is an excellent and original piece of work--a very solid piece of scholarship and clearly a contribution to the literature on the politics of reform. It fits in nicely with the tradition established first by Joan Nelson and colleagues, and then by Haggard and Kaufman."--Carol Graham, Brookings Institution, author of Private Markets for Public Goods

"This book makes a very significant contribution to the field. It is rare that a book is so ambitious in terms of both its breadth of empirical material and its effort to apply a theoretical framework that is, in this context, quite original. At a time when rational choice theories are increasingly dominant in comparative politics, the introduction of an alternative microlevel theory is quite refreshing. Weyland writes very well, in a clear and easy-to-read style that makes the theoretical chapters, in particular, especially accessible to those unfamiliar with the material."--Philip Oxhorn, McGill University, author of Organizing Civil Society
