WPR Feature Issue: South America

For anyone who enters the site through the blog, I recommend checking out the new WPR feature issue on South America, titled The Emerging Continent. It includes articles by Shannon O’Neil of the Council on Foreign Relations on the past and future of regional integration; WPR Contributing Editor Anastasia Moloney on the origins of and potential for the South American populist left; and Peter Kingstone of the University of Connecticut on whether or not the continent’s sleeping giant, Brazil, has finally woken up for good.

A lot has changed in South America over the course of a decade when America’s attention has largely been directed elsewhere. These three articles offer a good jumping off point for getting a handle on some of the most significant developments, and what the future holds. Enjoy.
