Book Description

Gain new, unique insights for poverty reduction throughout Latin America

Poverty and Inequality in the Latin American-U.S. Borderlands: Implications of U.S. Interventions shows the implications of direct and indirect involvement by the United States in the “borderlands” of Latin America, including Mexico, Cuba, Puerto Rico, and Guatemala. Recognized authorities give expert analysis of the implications of United States’ intervention on entrenched socioeconomic problems, while offering unique insights into poverty reduction.

Poverty and Inequality in the Latin American-U.S. Borderlands: Implications of U.S. Interventions focuses on:

  • the lasting effects of counterinsurgency-fuelled social change in Guatemala
  • the true effects of Progresa, Mexico’s Program for Education, Health and Nutrition
  • the anti-military struggle of the people of Vieques, Puerto Rico against the United States Navy
  • the survival strategies that Cuban women have developed to survive in hard economic times
  • the reinforcement of rural poverty through subsidy programs in South Mexico
  • powerful stories detailing personal experiences with poverty and inequality
Poverty and Inequality in the Latin American-U.S. Borderlands: Implications of U.S. Interventions is a valuable resource for sociologists, anthropologists, economists, historians, political scientists, public policy experts, and everyone interested in a detailed look at the complex economic, political, and social problems of Latin America.
