The current political and economic trends in Latin America transformed power relationships between donors and recipient countries. Advancing Governance in & nbsp;the South & nbsp;takes the lessons from the unfolding power relations and the conditions under which the International Financial Institutions (IFIs) promoted governance reforms in Argentina since the 1990s and extend the analysis to the challenges and dilemmas for the IFIs in face of the most recent redefinition of political and economic governance at the regional scale. In the process it explores what "power" currently means in the relationship between the IFIs and local actors in developing countries and the analytical implications for broader analysis of the tensions between sovereign authority, policy processes and externally-driven demands.

"Postdemokratie": Dieser Begriff des Politikwissenschaftlers Colin Crouch wurde nach dem Erscheinen der Originalausgabe seines Buches zum Kristallisationspunkt der Debatte um Politikverdrossenheit, Sozialabbau und Privatisierung. Crouch hat dabei ein politisches System im Auge, dessen demokratische Institutionen zwar weiterhin formal existieren, das von Bürgern und Politikern aber nicht länger mit Leben gefüllt wird. Der polemische Essay, der in Italien und Großbritannien bereits als Klassiker der Gegenwartsdiagnose gilt, liegt nun endlich auch in deutscher Übersetzung vor.

By the end of the 1980s, many Americans looked at the state of the nation with a renewed optimism. America was the world's only superpower, Communism had been defeated, the economic misery and inflation of the late 1970s and early 1980s had given way to prosperity and vast global wealth, and a new swashbuckling patriotism had entered into the public imagination. This patriotism and optimism was personified by an enduring American president--Ronald Wilson Reagan. The essays in this volume revisit the 1980s in order to examine the factors that contributed to Ronald Reagan's political and cultural triumphs, provide an assessment of the political, social, and economic substance and legacy of his policies--not just for Americans but for the shape of the world order.

The shift from state-led to market-oriented, neoliberal economic policies has been one of the most important changes in the developing world during the last two decades. Although much existing research has focused on why countries choose these neoliberal policy reforms and how they implement them, Richard Snyder's study offers an analysis of politics after neoliberalism. The book proposes a framework that explains how neoliberal reforms, rather than unleashing market forces, actually trigger 're-regulation' processes involving strategic interactions between political entrepreneurs and societal groups. Depending on the strengths and strategies of politicians and societal groups, reregulation results in different types of new institutions for market governance with contrasting consequences for economic efficiency and social justice. This framework is used in conjunction with an innovative subnational comparative method to analyze evidence from four Mexican states about the politics of reregulation.
