Summary This second edition of Modern Latin American Revolutions has been revised and updated to include new information on the cases of Bolivia, Cuba, and Grenada. Particular attention is given to the ongoing revolutionary process in Nicaragua after the 1990 elections, with brief analyses as well of recent events of El Salvador and Peru. This edition also provides expanded coverage of Che Guevara's visionary leadership and an all-new section that addresses the future of revolution in Latin America and the Caribbean. Professor Selbin argues that there is a strong link between organizational leadership and the institutionalization process on the one hand, and visionary leadership and the consolidation process on the other.
