Violent Democracies in Latin America

Book review

Hoelscher, Kristian (2013) Review of Violent Democracies in Latin America, in Journal of Peace Research 137–137.

Available online

The paradox of violent democratization in Latin America is taken up in this fine interdisciplinary collection. The book at its core concerns ‘violent pluralism’, or the way that ‘states, social elites, and subalterns employ violence in the quest to establish or contest regimes of citizenship, justice, rights, and a democratic social order’ (p. 4).
