The New Authoritarianism in Latin America

Edited by David Collier

Princeton University Press, 1980, 424 pp.

Seeking to understand authoritarianism and its relationship to the problems of economic development, the authors provide nine essays on the general nature of the bureaucratic/authoritarian model, the reasons for its emergence, and its possible future evolution. A study by Albert Hirschman on economic determinants is interesting.
