The simultaneous development of prominent social movements and the election of left and center-left governments has radically altered the political landscape in Latin America. Social Movements and Leftist Governments in Latin America moves beyond simple discussion of these social movements to address a crucial issue that has yet to be properly analyzed – what is the position of the social movements after progressive governments take power? Are they co-opted in support of state policies or do they remain opponents? This unique and important work explores these questions, shedding new light on how these social movements continue to operate in Latin America.
