Change in Latin America Fall 2008 Robert Kaufman 790:312 Hickman 608 Kaufrutger@Aol.com The objective of this course is to introduce students to policy issues in the relations between the United States and Latin America, and to the contemporary politics and society of selected Latin American countries. The countries selected – Mexico, Brazil, and Venezuela – have considerable influence on developments in the rest of the region. In recent decades, Brazil and Mexico have each experienced transitions from authoritarian to democratic regimes and from highly protected economies to ones much more open to international markets. Venezuela has gone from a two-party democratic state to one dominated by a populist leader. We will examine and compare the way each society has faced the challenges associated with these fundamental transformations. . Grades will be based on the following: 1. A midterm exam on U.S. policy toward Latin America (one-third) 2. A midterm exam on Mexico (one third) 3. A final exam (one third)
