Book Description

A newly updated edition of the best-selling primer on the social, political, and economic challenges facing Central and South America

Ten years after its first publication, Michael Reid's best-selling survey of the state of contemporary Latin America has been wholly updated to reflect the new realities of the Forgotten Continent. The former Americas editor for the Economist, Reid suggests that much of Central and South America, though less poor, less unequal, and better educated than before, faces harder economic times now that the commodities boom of the 2000s is over. His revised, in-depth account of the region reveals dynamic societies more concerned about corruption and climate change, the uncertainties of a Donald Trump-led United States, and a political cycle that, in many cases, is turning from left-wing populism to center-right governments. This essential new edition provides important insights into the sweeping changes that have occurred in Latin America in recent years and indicates priorities for the future.

Author Bio

Michael Reid writes the Bello column on Latin America and is the newspaper’s writer-at-large for the region. He is based in Madrid. He joined The Economist in 1990 as Mexico and Central America correspondent and in 1994 changed to cover consumer industries. In 1996 he moved to São Paulo to be the bureau chief and in 1999 returned to London as Americas Editor, a post he held until December 2013. His books include “Forgotten Continent: The Battle for Latin America’s Soul” (2007) and “Brazil: The Troubled Rise of a Global Power” (April 2014), both published by Yale University Press. Mr Reid is a frequent speaker on Latin American and Iberian affairs, to business, academic and public-policy audiences. 

He has given evidence to the Foreign Relations Committee of the US Senate and to the Foreign Affairs Committee of the British House of Commons. He is also a frequent guest on television, radio and print outlets in Britain, the United States and Latin America, including CNN, BBC World TV, NPR, Globo (Brazil) and El País (Spain).
