The Politics of Antipolitics: The Military in Latin America

Professor of Political Science Brian Loveman, Brian Loveman, Thomas M. Davies
University of Nebraska Press, 1978 - 309 páginas
First published in 1978 and here updated from the 1989 edition to include more information on the origins of antipolitics and its history in the 19th and early 20th centuries, to emphasize the often illusory transitions to democracy from 1965 to 1995, to explore why and how military rulers accede to elected civilian governments, and to document the military's generally successful defense against accusations of human rights abuses. The 28 essays find that the civilian governments blossoming throughout Latin America are dressing authoritarian institutions in the trappings of protected democracy in order to suppress popular movements and to privilege the market. No index. Paper edition (unseen), $23.95. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
