Latin America's Christian Democratic Parties

Full Product Description

This work provides a comprehensive examination of Christian Democracy in Latin America from its 19th-century origins to the events of the 1990s. The author examines the record of Christian Democratic parties in the most crucial areas of economic concern in Latin America: chapters on land reform, nationalisation and the emergence of free market capitalism highlight the relationship between politics and economics. Lynch concludes that had Latin America's Christian Democrats followed their own policy prescriptions, both they and Latin America would be better off. Instead, Christian Democrats abandoned their roots in Catholic social thought, embraced statism and left their countries completely unprepared for the upsurge in liberal economic reform that swept Latin America in the 1980s. This work should be of interest to scholars and students in Latin American studies, Third World studies, political economy, comparative politics, religion and politics.

Latin America's Christian Democratic Parties by Edward A. Lynch was published by Greenwood Press in November 1992. The ISBN for Latin America's Christian Democratic Parties is 9780275944643.
