Description of this Book

This handbook explores the political economy and governance of the Americas, placing particular emphasis on collective and intertwined experiences. Forty-six chapters cover a range of concepts and dynamics in the Americas. The flow of peoples, goods, knowledge and finances have promoted interdependence and integration that cut across borders and link the countries of North and South America together. The nature of this transversally related and multiply interconnected region can only be captured through a transnational, multidisciplinary and comprehensive approach. This handbook examines the interlinked economic development and the vast natural resources the two continents share. Expert contributors give a comprehensive overview of the theories, practices and geographies that have shaped the economic fortunes of the region and the impact on both the political and natural landscape. This multidisciplinary approach will be of interest to a broad array of academic scholars and students in history, sociology, political science cultural, postcolonial, gender, literary and globalization studies.
