Synopsis

Latin America's Multicultural Movements is a collection of empirically-based chapters that advance debates over the struggle between communitarianism, autonomy, and human rights. Assembling some of the most eminent scholars of Latin America, it presents an impressive range of views on multiculturalism. In doing so it moves beyond ideology and invites readers to explore how multicultural reforms affect people in their everyday lives, as well as in political parties, elected offices, and interest groups. It examines multicultural rights recognition in theory and in practice, multicultural and autonomy movements in the Andes and in Mexico, and concludes by looking at the controversial role of the state regarding multicultural rights.
