Capitalism and the State in U.S.-Latin American Relations
Capitalism and the State in U.S.-Latin American Relations
Edited by Richard R. Fagen
Stanford University Press, 1979, 446 pp

These 12 essays, academic in tone, tilt strongly against the capitalist world order and the general posture of U.S. policies. The nature of contemporary capitalism and the contemporary state is explored, with critical references to the impeding effect of the U.S. political economy and the corresponding global system upon current political and economic relationships. There is not much on alternative solutions.
