Johns Hopkins University Press, 2000 - 391 pagine
Under what conditions do political institutions develop that are capable of promoting economic and social elites' accommodation to the democracy? The importance of this question for research on regime change and democracy in Latin America lies in two established political facts: alliances between upper-class groups and the armed forces have historically been a major cause of military intervention in the region, and countries with electorally viable national conservative parties have experienced significantly longer periods of democratic governance since the 1920s and 1930s than have countries with weak conservative parties.
