The idea of 'deepening democracy' emerged as a guiding principle of the political Left and social movements in much of Latin America in the 1980s, but it has proved very difficult to implement. Comparative analyses of Chile and Peru lead the author to suggest that the new project of the Left is heavily contingent on the organization of collective action in civil society. The book sheds theoretical light on the structural and institutional forces that have hampered the political success of the Left and limited democratic practice.
