Politics and Social Structure in Latin America by James Petras


Paperback. Condition: Good. 1970. Modern Reader Books.

Petras’ book is a series of essays on the causes of underdevelopment in Latin America from a Marxist standpoint, comparable to André Frank’s Latin America: Underdevelopment or Revolution (Monthly Review Press, 1969), but written with a primary focus on the late sixties in contrast to Frank’s historical perspective.
