Looking to the way that race has been conceived through the tradition of Latin American political thought, The Color of Citizenship examines the centrality of race in the making of modern citizenship. It posits race as synthetic, dynamic, and fluid - a concept that will have methodological, historical, and normative value for understanding race in other diverse societies.
This book explores comparative political theory through the study of a range of places and periods with contributions from a diverse group of scholars. The volume builds on recent work in political theory, seeking to focus scholarly attention on non-Western thought in order to contribute to both political theory and our understanding of the modern globalized world. Featuring discussions of international law and imperialism, regions such as South Asia and Latin America, religions such as Buddhism and Islam, along with imperialism and revolution, the volume also includes an overview of comparative political theory. Contributing scholars deploy a variety of methodological and interpretive approaches, ranging from archival research to fieldwork to close studies of texts in the original language. The volume elucidates the pluralism and dissensus that characterizes both cross-national and intra-national political thought.
In the early twenty-first century, the citizens of many Latin American countries, such as Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Ecuador, and Venezuela, elected left-wing governments, explicitly rejecting and attempting to reverse the policies of neoliberal structural economic adjustment that had prevailed in the region during the 1990s. However, in other countries such as Chile, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru continuity and even extension of the neoliberal agenda have been the norm. What were the consequences of rejecting the neoliberal consensus in Latin America? Why did some countries stay on the neoliberal course? Contributors to Latin America Since the Left Turn address these questions and more as they frame the tensions and contradictions that currently characterize Latin American societies and politics. Divided into three sections, the book begins with an examination of the political economy, from models of development, to taxation and spending patterns, to regionalization of trade and human migration. The second section analyzes the changes in democracy and political identities. The last part explores the themes of citizenship, constitutionalism, and new forms of civic participation. With essays by the foremost scholars in the field, Latin America Since the Left Turn not only delves into the cases of specific countries but also surveys the region as a whole.

English summary: Following years of preparation, the author of the standard work The History of Christianity in Latin America (1978) here presents a perfectly new concept of his seminal textbook, which unfolds in a compact format the sum of a lifetime of research in this field.Hans-Juergen Prien's extensive teaching and research as Chair for Iberian and Latin American History (established by Richard Konetzke) has put him in a position to demonstrate the embeddedness of the history of the church in Latin America - as far as this is feasible within the framework of the Monographs on the History of the Church - in the main political, social, and economic developments of this subcontinent.The comprehensive list of sources and the bibliography attest to the fact that by now it has become almost impossible for a single scholar to acquire a firm command of the entire history of the denominationally extremely diverse Christianity of an entire subcontinent, spanning five hundred years. German description: Der Autor des Standardwerkes aDie Geschichte des Christentums in Lateinamerika (1978) legt nach langjahrigen Vorarbeiten in vollig neuer Konzeption ein Lehrbuch zum Christentum in Lateinamerika vor, das in kurzer Form die Summe seines Forscherlebens auf diesem Gebiet darstellt. Priens Lehrtatigkeit auf dem von Richard Konetzke begruendeten Lehrstuhl fuer Iberische und Lateinamerikanische Geschichte hat seinen Uberblick ueber die Politische Geschichte, Gesellschafts- und Wirtschaftsgeschichte Lateinamerikas wesentlich erweitert, so dass er die Einbettung der Kirchengeschichte in diese Gebiete immer wieder zu verdeutlichen versucht, soweit das im Rahmen der Reihe aKirchengeschichte in Einzeldarstellungen moglich ist. Das umfangreiche Quellen- und Literaturverzeichnis zeigt, dass es heute fuer einen einzelnen Forscher kaum noch moglich ist, die konfessionell stark zerklueftete Christentumsgeschichte eines ganzen Subkontinents ueber fuenf Jahrhunderte hinweg zu ueberblicken.
