Event Details

This talk, by Scott Mainwaring, is based on his recently published book, coauthored by Aníbal Perez-Liñán. The book examines the emergence and the subsequent propensity of democracies and dictatorships to survive or break down in Latin America from 1900 until 2010. Because of their conviction that existing theories did not adequately explain regime change or stability for Latin America, the authors developed a new theory to explain regime change and stability. Their approach is situated between long term structural or macrocultural theories and analyses that focus on the swiftly changing coalitions at moments of regime change or the decisions of specific leaders. They emphasize the politically constructed preferences of specific political actors--especially their policy moderation or radicalism and their normative orientation toward democracy. The book offers the first extended analysis of regime emergence, survival, and breakdown of all twenty Latin American countries over an extended time.
