Evo Morales

BOLIVIA UNDER MORALES

Dear Reader,

Latin American Perspectives is pleased to announce the upcoming release of a dual special issue,

“Bolivia Under Morales”

ISSUE EDITORS: BENJAMIN KOHL & ROSALIND BRESNAHAN

Part 1 Available May 1, 2010
CONSOLIDATING POWER, INITIATING DECOLONIZATION

Part 2 Available July 1, 2010
NATIONAL AGENDA, REGIONAL CHALLENGES, AND THE STRUGGLE FOR HEGEMONY

The 2005 election of Evo Morales as the first indigenous President of Bolivia was a watershed not only for Bolivia but for the all of the Americas. The breadth of the political, economic, social, and cultural changes envisioned in the “decolonization” advocated by the MAS (Movement toward Socialism) movement headed by Morales places Bolivia at the forefront of social change in Latin America. As Morales begins his second term, Latin American Perspectives presents a broad-ranging collection of articles from leading Bolivian, U.S. and other international theorists and scholars that offer multiple perspectives on the rise of the MAS, its program for the decolonization of Bolivia, and the conflicts engendered by this struggle for social transformation.
