Origins of Mercosur by Gian Luca Gardini
Book DescriptionThe processes of democratization and regionalization in South America ran parallel to one another between 1985 and 1991. However, the nature of this relationship is by no means clear. This book explores the diplomatic history of the formation of Mercosur and analyzes the precise place of democracy in the process. At the methodological level, a combination of hitherto unexamined documents and extensive interview material makes for a novel oral history approach to diplomatic studies. At the theoretical level, a melding of cognitive approaches to foreign policy making and realist theory of international relations provides a nuanced but systematic explanation of events.

Latin America in the 21st Century, Paperback (April 2012)
In this fascinating and insightful analysis, Gardini looks at contemporary developments in Latin America at the state, regional and global level, arguing that despite the numerous challenges to be faced, the region is now more wealthy, autonomous and better-placed in global geopolitics than at any time in its recent history.
Latin American Foreign Policies, Hardback (April 2011)» View all books by Gian Luca Gardini
In recent years several Latin American countries have adopted a more assertive and autonomous stance in their foreign policy. The growing rejection of neo-liberalism as an ideological dogma seems to have given space to more pragmatic stances in favour of national interests.
