The book analyzes the social consequences of recent development strategies in Latin America. The volume introduces readers to official strategies, private initiatives and individual responses to issues of welfare and poverty during the twentieth century. These issues are addressed from several disciplines. A substantial introduction is followed by a wide range of case-studies, including Pinochet's Chile, the Haiti of the Duvaliers and Nicaragua under the somocistas and sandinistas, as well as Brazil, Mexico, the Argentine, Cuba and Colombia.
