Eduardo Aleman and George Tsebelis (Eds.) (2016), Legislative Institutions and Lawmaking in Latin America. Oxford: Oxford University Press.
In this volume, twelve experts on Latin American politics investigate the ways in which the interaction between legislative institutions and the policy positions of key actors affects the initiation and passage of legislation, covering seven Latin American Countries: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, and Uruguay. These seven presidential systems vary widely in terms of their legislative institutions and the position of relevant actors.
