We are delighted to welcome Michael Reid for the launch of a revised and updated version of ‘Forgotten Continent: A History of the New Latin America’, coming out with Yale University Press ten years after the original edition was first published, and launched at Canning House also.

Among other things, the new edition takes in the rise and fall of the commodity boom, the ebbing of the “pink tide”, citizen discontent with corruption, social change in the region, and the challenge of overcoming “the middle income trap”.

Michael Reid is Senior Editor for Latin America and Spain at The Economist and Bello columnist. He is the author of ‘Forgotten Continent: A History of the New Latin America’ and ‘Brazil: The Troubled Rise of a Global Power’. He will be joined for discussion by Francisco Panizza, professor in Latin American and Comparative Politics at the LSE.

The book launch will be followed by a wine reception.
