    Course Description The course elucidates the history and development of Latin America from the Independence period in the early nineteenth century to the present. The basic question posed is why the Latin American republics have not fully converged economically, socially and politically with the advanced capitalist countries. Why do so many of them seem to continue to exhibit characteristics that we associate with the Third or Developing World, rather than those we associate with the First or Developed World? The course is organised chronologically and various development strategies including liberalism, industrialisation, socialism, neo-liberalism and the recent shift to more state-directed societies examined in the context of the ethnic, class, gender, cultural and political divisions within specific countries, and the relationship of these countries with other parts of the world including the United States, Europe and Asia.
