Description - An Economic History of Twentieth-Century Latin America by Enrique Cardenas

In the 1990s, "protection", "import substitution" and "intervention" became dirty words, part of the "leyenda negra" of Latin America development in the postwar period. This book attempts a fresh look at the controversial years between the end of World War II and the point when, at varying dates in different countries, a discontinuity occurs in which the postwar "style of development" ceased to play a central role in the economic evolution of the region. The analysis is based on seven case studies covering eleven countries.
