JAVIER CORRALES, Associate Professor of Political Science at Amherst College and a visiting scholar at Harvard’s David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies, argues that the notion of a united leftist coalition of Latin nations opposing the United States and free-market reforms is an illusion. The author of several books on democratization, constitutional change, and economic reforms in Latin America, Corrales will explore the many faces of the leftist trend in Latin America.
