📙 Vargas Llosa and Latin American Politics by Juan E. De Castro, Nicholas Birns — free epub


Written from diverse perspectives, the eleven essays that make up Vargas Llosa and Latin American Politics portray the Nobel Prize-winning Peruvian novelist not only as one of the most celebrated writers of the last 50 years, but also as a central influence on the region’s political evolution. Ever since his conversion to free market ideology in the 1980s, Mario Vargas Llosa has waged public battle against what he believes are the scourges of socialism and populism. This book studies the fiction and journalism of Vargas Llosa in the context of his political thought.
