n Latin American Report - Populism again - a review of , Michael L Connif (Ed.) : book review

Volume 16, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0256-6060



This work may be seen as a sequel to Conniff's earlier collection of essays on (Albuquerque: University of New Mexico Press, 1982), which described populist leaders from the 1920s through the 1960s. The present volume, however, as described by John Wirth in his brief 'Foreword' to the work, 'is a more comprehensive volume than the first one, and a more mature appraisal of a complex phenomenon' (p. vii). Like the earlier volume, this work focuses on twentieth-century Latin American leaders who fall into the broad and often ambiguous definition of 'populist.' At the very least, they had in common their appeal to large segments of the population, often through effective use of new technologies of media communication.
