In the 1990s, protection , import substitution and intervention became dirty words, part of the leyenda negra of Latin America development in the postwar period. This book attempts a fresh look at the controversial years between the end of World War II and the point when, at varying dates in different countries, a discontinuity occurs in which the postwar style of development ceased to play a central role in the ecomic evolution of the region. The analysis is based on seven case studies covering eleven countries.
