The Politics of Modern Central America

Dr. Fabrice Lehoucq (Political Science) is the author of The Politics of Modern Central America:  Civil War, Democratization, and Underdevelopment (Cambridge University Press, 2012). The book provides an analysis of both the origins and outcomes of civil war in Central America, including social, economic, and political upheavals and even failures. It seeks to use examples from the events in this region to enable a broader understanding of political change and civil war. One reviewer called it “a well-executed book of impressive theoretical scope and richness.” Another declared, “If I were to recommend one book on modern Central America to my students, it would be this one.' Clearly it is a valuable addition to scholarship on this often volatile area.
