WAr in modern Latin America

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The military plays an important role in our images of Latin America. Both popular media and academic analyses assume that the military has been and remains the critical state actor. It would be hard to imagine a region more associated with a strong military tradition or one where armed confict was apparently so central.1 Yet, while Latin American militaries have interfered in politics and often served as repressive policemen, they have rarely functioned as the more traditional roles of soldiers.
