The book explores how the collapse of the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA) negotiations in 2005 was rooted in a qcrisis of authorityq with respect to the leadership of the United States in the Americas. This qcrisis of authorityq was prompted by growing opposition in the Americas to the neo-liberal reforms that had been promoted by Washington since the 1980s. Marcel Nelson demonstrates how the FTAA became the focal point of this opposition from a growing chorus of leftist heads of state in Latin America to the detriment of the negotiations. A neo-Gramscian theoretical framework will be used to frame the manner in which the qcrisis of authorityq came to the fore in the states of the Americas and in the institutional structure established to negotiate the FTAA.Louise Fawcett and Monica Serrano (New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2005), 27. 59. ...
