In this book event, Edward Gibson and James Mahoney will discuss Gabriel Vommaro's new volume, Conservatives Against the Tide, in conversation with the author.  Moderated by Claudio Benzecry.

The book addresses the successes of conservative parties in non-authoritarian contexts in contemporary Latin America.  It places the core case of Argentina's Republican Proposal (PRO) party in comparative perspective with Argentina's Recrear and with Colombia's Democratic Center party and Bolivia's Social Democratic Movement, in an effort to understand their differing degrees of succes in adverse circumstances.

Gabriel Vommaro is Professor of Political Sociology at the IDAES, Universidad de San Martin and Researcher at the Argentinian National Research Council, CONICET.  He is currently a fellow at CIPR, Stone Center for Latin American Studies, Tulane University.

Edward Gibson in the Kenneth Burgess Professor of Political Science at Northwestern University.
