This course approaches Latin America through the lens of politics, often from a comparative and historical perspective. Drawing examples from various countries over a 200-year period, it examines the development of political structures, cultures, and practices in Latin America from a sociological perspective. It is divided into two parts. The first focuses on the historical development of Latin American social and political structures, touching on issues of colonialism, race, class, nationalism, the nation state, democracy, and international influences. The second part covers various forms of contentious politics that have been practiced in Latin America since the mid-twentieth century.
