LATIN AMERICAN PERSPECTIVES

Latin American Perspectives, founded in 1974, is a theoretical and scholarly journal for discussion and debate on the political economy of capitalism, imperialism, and socialism in the Americas. Most issues focus on a single problem, nation, or region, providing an in-depth look from participants and scholars throughout the Americas.

MISSION

Our objective is to encourage class analysis of sociocultural realities and political strategies to transform Latin American sociopolitical structures. We make a conscious effort to publish a diversity of political viewpoints, both Marxist and non-Marxist perspectives, that have influenced progressive debates in Latin America. Top priority will be given to articles that strike directly at the most important theoretical issues, particularly subjects that have received inadequeate discussion or are in sharp dispute. We also attempt to encourage the work of relatively “unknown” students and scholars, and to bring the work of Latin American scholars to the English-speaking world. Latin American Perspectives welcomes strong views as long as they are backed by cogent arguments, are grounded in Latin American reality, and are written to be comprehensible to a wide audience. Readers’ criticism, comments, and proposals are welcomed.
