During the twentieth century, Latin America witnessed both peaceful political movements and violent revolutions aimed at redressing economic inequalities and creating a more just society. This course will consider several of these movements in comparative perspective: the Mexican Revolution, the Allende regime in Chile, the Cuban and Nicaraguan Revolutions. Among the questions we will consider are the following: What factors account for the emergence of these movements? What has determined their success or failure? What impact have they had on society? Are they compatible with democracy? What role has the United States played in fomenting or preventing these radical political movements?
