'I strongly recommend that people grappling with the political crisis of left governments in Latin America buy his book and pay close attention to his arguments' -- Louis Proyect, Counterpunch '[A] comprehensive analysis of the rise and recent crisis of the wave of progressive governments in Latin America ... Webber steers a judicious path between the uncritical cheerleaders of this process and those who deny any real gains' -- Socialist Resistance 'A lucid, incisive and indispensable contribution for understanding the rise and fall of left and center-left governments associated with Latin America's 'pink tide.' Webber validates the superiority of a critical Marxian and decolonial approach for slicing through the thick layers of the center-left's self-serving rhetoric' -- Fernando Leiva, author of Latin American Neostructuralism: The Contradictions of Post-Neoliberal Development 'At a time when most scholars of contentious politics have abandoned political economy, Jeffery Webber's latest book is a breath of fresh air ... simply the best book we have on the rise and current crisis of the new Latin American Left' -- Jeff Goodwin, New York University 'Combining a Marxist and a decolonial theoretical framework, Webber brings us much more than a study on economic policies: an insightful assessment of class struggles against the capitalist oligarchies and the market dictatorship in Latin America' -- Michael Loewy, author of Ecosocialism: A Radical Alternative to Capitalist Catastrophe (Haymarket, 2015) 'If you have ever wondered what happened to the beacon of hope that was, until recently, Latin America, this is the book to turn to' -- Andreas Malm, author of Fossil Capital: The Rise of Steam Power and the Roots of Global Warming (Verso, 2015)
