Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Political scientists from Latin America, the US, and Britain explore political factors that shaped reform initiatives in Latin America aimed at correcting problems in the health and education sectors during the late 1980s and 1990s. They are concerned with the design and impact of social sector reforms rather than with the political processes by which they are brought about. The 16 studies are from two workshops in April 2002 on the politics of reform in the two sectors.
Annotation 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Crucial Needs, Weak Incentives studies the politics of efforts to reform education and health services in Latin America in the 1990s. Both sectors were common targets of reform — education because of its economic importance, health care because of needs to reduce great inequities of access and opportunities to increase domestic savings presented by reforms. Both sectors also have large numbers of unionized public employees, whose presence affects patronage as well as political power.

The book presents case studies that offer a wealth of new information not previously accessible to the English-speaking academic and policy community. For health care, these cover Mexico, Argentina, Colombia, Brazil, Costa Rica, and Peru; for eductaion, Mexico, Argentina, Colombia, Brazil, Nicaragua, and Venezuela. Four chapters by the editors set out for each sector the goals, structure, and outcomes of reform efforts.

Contributors are Marta Arretche, Josefina Bruni Celli, Mary A. Clark, Javier Corrales, Sonia M. Draibe, Christina Ewig, Alec Ian Gershberg, Alejandra Gonzalez Rossetti, Merilee S. Grindle, Peter Lloyd-Sherlock, Pamela S. Lowden, and Patricia Ramirez.
