Cities were consolidated and to a certain extent reorganized as the region moved from a quasi-self-sufficient settler economy to gradual integration into the world market as a producer of primary goods. Internal migration flows …responded rapidly to these developments, leading to the growth of secondary cities in Brazil, Chile, and, in particular, along the Mexico-U.S. In particular, within a broader Latin American context where it was becoming increasingly common to talk of the existence of a “crisis of governance” (see e.g.

de Rivero, 1998; Galeano, 1998; Gledhill, 1996; O’Donnell, 1999), it was widely speculated that slum-based social movements might have the potential to take on some of the institutional functions of retreating Register a free account to unlock additional features at BleepingComputer.com Welcome to BleepingComputer, a free community where people like yourself come together to discuss and learn how to use their computers.
