POLS 4208 - Politics of Latin American Development

Latin American countries share a common past of colonialism, war, poverty, authoritarianism, political instability and foreign intervention. They differ, however, in the way they have tried to deal with this legacy. Although more attention will be dedicated to understanding their collective experiences since 1945, this course examines the struggle for political and economic development from the time they became independent to the present.

Prerequisite: POLS 1101 or POLS 1101H, and POLS 2401 or POLS 2401H (POLS 2401 can be taken as a Corequisite as well)
