Power and Popular Protest by Susan Eckstein
Book DescriptionEclectic and insightful, these essays - by historians, sociologists, political scientists, and anthropologists - represent a range of subjects on the cause and consequence of protest movements in Latin America, from an examination of the varying faces but common origins of rural guerilla movements, to a discussion of multiclass protests, to an essay on las madres de plaza de mayo. This volume is an indispensable text for anyone concerned with reducing inequities and injustices around the world, so that oppressed people need not be defiant before their concerns are addressed. A new preface and epilogue discuss recent social movements.

Immigrant Divide, Hardback (June 2009)
Offers an analysis of Cuban immigrants' social, cultural, economic, and political adaptation, and their transformation of Miami into the 'northern most Latin American city'. This book provides a fresh insight into the lives of Cuban immigrants, into Cuba in the post Soviet era, and into how Washington's failed Cuba policy might be improved.
What Justice? Whose Justice?, Paperback (October 2003)
The new millennium began with the triumph of democracy and markets. But for whom is life just, how so, and why? And what is being done to correct persisting injustices? This book offers fresh insights that deepen our understanding of social justice as ideology and practice.
Back from the Future, Paperback (July 1995)» View all books by Susan Eckstein
This text describes how and explains why Cuban Communism has been misperceived and misunderstood abroad. The book argues that not only has Castro's Cuba been less ideologically driven by Marxist-Leninist orthodoxy than has been believed, it has also been less omnipotent.
