Globalization and Uncertainty in Latin America gathers new scholarship on globalization and Latin America in an entertaining and well-researched volume. This balanced and innovative collection examines how rising levels of uncertainty affect daily life, as well as society, government, and culture. Well-known authors use different methodologies to approach the common theme of a region transformed in recent years by neoliberalism. Most of the contributors suggest that Latin America is experiencing rapid and unexpected change, and that its future looks much different than ever predicted. In total, the book suggests that high levelsof uncertainty in the region have resulted in counterintuitive and, attimes, innovative political outcomes
