The focus for students of Latin America in the twenty-first century has been on the so-called pink tide bringing social and economic change. Far less attention has been paid to the forces resisting such change. Such opposition is being orchestrated by political parties, business interests, the private media and other institutions and is linked to the 'soft power' of US diplomacy. Its activities have often appeared to challenge the democratic process itself. Based on original fieldwork, this volume addresses the current trajectories of right-wing politics in Latin America in the face of leftist governments, the discrediting of neoliberalism and the decline of US hegemony. Featuring country-specific chapters covering both the right in government and the right in opposition, Right-wing Politics in the New Latin America is a revealing and important book for anyone interested in contemporary Latin American politics.
