Political Dimensions of the International Debt Crisis

Five papers on the political dimensions of the debt crisis at international, geo-political and national levels are presented in this volume. Case studies of Sudan, Senegal, Ivory Coast and Mexico are included. Among the book’s conclusions is the observation that the erosion of government powers and legitimacy is ultimately the most damaging consequence of the debt experience of Latin America and Africa during the 1970s and 1980s.
