The Ebb of the Pink Tide: The Decline of the Left in Latin America

Today, we are in conversation with Professor Mike Gonzalez about how left-wing elected governments in Latin America have been under assault from reactionary forces and the U.S. government.  We also discuss how the so called Pink Tide has come short in its socialist promises and what are the prospects for Latin American politics.

GuestMike Gonzalez is Emeritus Professor of Latin American Studies at the University of Glasgow. He is the author of such books as Hugo Chavez: Socialist for the Twenty-first Century (Pluto, 2014); The Last Drop: The Politics of Water (Pluto, 2015);  and his latest The Ebb of the Pink Tide: The Decline of the Left in Latin America (Pluto, 2018).
