Global Garveyism E D I T E D B Y R O N A L D J. S T E P H E N S A N D A D A M E W I N G

• The Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA), founded by Marcus Garvey, was the largest pan-African organization of its time, numbering over 1000 chapters in forty countries.

Labor Politics in Latin America Democracy and Worker Organization in the Neoliberal Era PAUL W. POSNER, VIVIANA PATRONI, AND JEAN FRANÇOIS MAYER

• Provides an historical overview of labor politics in Latin America since the introduction of neoliberal reforms in the latter decades of the twentieth century. • Evaluates the impact of such neoliberal reforms on labor movements and workers’ rights in the region. • Analyzes labor politics in five countries—Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Venezuela—in order to explain the deteriorating working conditions confronted in most countries of the region. • Challenges the purported benefits of labor market flexibility—the freedom of employers to adjust their workforces as needed—by showing how flexibilization and other processes have undermined organized labor in all of these countries. • Concludes that even with substantial variation among countries in how reforms have been implemented, most workers in the region have experienced increasing precarity, informal employment, and weaker labor movements.

Mestizo Modernity Race, Technology, and the Body in Postrevolutionary Mexico D AV I D S . D A LTO N

• After the end of the Mexican Revolution in 1917, post-revolutionary leaders hoped to assimilate the country’s racially diverse population into one official mixed-race identity— the mestizo.
