Oil and Politics in Latin America by George Philip

Book Description

This book provides a study of the transformation of the Latin American oil system from one in which the international oil companies dominated to one which is dominated by the main state oil companies, and an account of how some of the more important of the state companies have operated. This comprehensive guide to the evolution of the Latin American oil system combines in one volume a synthesis of material from secondary sources and original research and thus provides an invaluable reference for all concerned with the history and economy of Latin America and with the development and functioning of the international oil industry.

Books By Author George Philip

Mexico's Struggle for Public Security by George Philip Mexico's Struggle for Public Security, Hardback (June 2012)

The Mexican government's full-frontal attack on the powerful drugs cartels has achieved mixed results. This book considers the issue from a variety of viewpoints. The essential argument is that the organized crime is best combated by institutional reforms directed at strengthening the rule of law rather than by a heavy reliance on armed force.

Triumph of Politics by George Philip Triumph of Politics, Paperback (September 2011)

Offers an historical interpretation of Venezuela's Chavez, Bolivia's Morales and Ecuador's Correa - South America's most prominent '21st century socialists'. This book shows how the consensual market oriented policymaking that characterized almost all of South America in the 1990s has now given way to something quite different.

Democracy in Latin America by George Philip Democracy in Latin America, Paperback (April 2003)

Latin America has seen a great extension of democratic government over the past twenty years. However democratisation has proved problematic in a number of ways: many Latin American countries have seen little per capita growth; poverty has increased; and political crises have often recurred.
