 About the Book 

Changes in Latin America have created a new political game with new rules, argue the authors, and the Catholic Church - the voice of the voiceless in the 1980s - will find itself increasingly constrained in its political activity in the 1990s. TheMoreChanges in Latin America have created a new political game with new rules, argue the authors, and the Catholic Church - the voice of the voiceless in the 1980s - will find itself increasingly constrained in its political activity in the 1990s. The church will have to respond to limits placed on it by the Vatican and by strained human and financial resources. It also faces competition from a massive surge of evangelical Protestantism. The authors address this new situation, looking in depth at Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Cuba, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Panama.
