CHOICE ReviewBeverley (Hispanic languages and literature, Univ. of Pittsburgh) explores the roots and applications of the term "Latinamericanism," concluding that Latinamericanism is ultimately tied to the Latin American state. He traces deconstruction's role in the failure of the region's first armed struggles and characterizes the experience of its participants as disillusioned. Acknowledging the presence of the new Left in Latin America as an outgrowth of the previous contradictions, he notes that the emergence of the marea rosada ("Pink Tide") followed the US shift in attention from Latin America after 9/11. Beverley anticipates either neoconservative or ultra-leftist poles, both poised to replace globalization and neoliberal hegemony, as the next turn in the political sphere. Following Garcia Linera's response that the "general horizon of the era" is communism, he sees the need for a people-state to come from the subaltern classes, and affirms the role of the critical intellectual in the process of creating solidarity and reinventing the state as such. Conversant across the disciplines (sociology, history, economics, politics, literary criticism) with worldwide theorists and familiar with a "studies" approach, Beverley produces a book of ambitious scope with a striking conclusion that the reader, though disinclined to accept, is hard-pressed to ignore. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Graduate students, researchers, faculty. J. M. Beatson Charleston Southern University
