From the Paper:

"The Ongoing Relevance of Carlos Fuentes, in Latin America - at War with the Past. (1985). Toronto: Anansi, 2001. The arguments found in Carlos Fuentes's volume, Latin America - at War with the Past, as valid in 2005, as they were 20 years ago, in a day when the world may have seemed rather different. The Soviet Union had yet to fall, there was some faith in international development programs that allowed for deficit finance, and developing countries had yet to feel the effects of restructuring ordered by the World Bank and International Monetary Fund."
