Contents:
A stage for imagining consent : colonial politics and U.S. policies of reform -- Demands for reform and the rise of political leadership -- From turmoil to turning point : political change and the sugar strike of 1942 -- Visions of consent and the tactics of political displacement -- Confronting victory : electoral aftermath and the ascendant discourse of consent -- The challenge of a new political logic.
Summary: A familiar feature of analyses about mass mobilization in Latin America between the 1930s and 1950s is an emphasis on manipulation and social control of leaders over their constituencies. This book addresses mass mobilization from a different angle by focusing less on the unidirectional action of leaders and the passivity of their followers and more on the interactive process between agents that informed their support for reform and the articulation of a political discourse based on notions of consent. Villaronga understands the consent of people and their discourse as both open support for so.
