Politicians, business leaders and citizens look with hope to the Latin American middle class for political stability and purchasing power, but the economic position of the middle class remains vulnerable. The contributors document the remarkable emergence of this middle group in Latin America, whose measurement turns out not to be an easy task.

The contributors to Dayton-Johnson's volume are a mix of economists working in government, academia, and international organizations such as the World Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank. Readers will be interested in their research findings regarding the growth of the middle class since 2000 and related questions. The editor's introduction includes a clear explanation of the various income-based definitions. (Dennis Gilbert, Latin American Research Review, Vol. 51 (1), 2016)
