Impulse to Revolution in Latin America
Impulse to Revolution in Latin America
By Jeffrey W. Barren
Praeger, 1985, 357 pp

A sound description and analysis of the economic, cultural and political factors that retard growth in Latin America, and the nature of the region's reaction. A comment on nationalistic anti-imperialism: "The mere existence of a powerful, prosperous and creative West threatened the self-esteem of reactive nationalists; and so when they protested against the West, they were also protesting its superior position in the hierarchy of civilizations."
