Description - Politician's Dilemma by Barbara Geddes
In Latin America as elsewhere, politicans routinely face a painful dilemma: whether to use state resources for national purposes, especially to foster economic development, or to channel resources to people and projects that will aid in their own struggle for political survival. This study explores the ways political actors respond to these contradictory pressures, asking the questions, "When will politicians support reforms that increase state capacity, and when will they oppose them?"
