Book Description Report this book

Democracia en Costa Rica? Cinco de los más acuciosos cientificos sociales se juntan para analizar por qué este país centroamericano tiene la más larga y estable democracia de toda América Latina. Ninguno acepta la explicación tradicional de que los ticos son más cultos, homogéneos, iguales y diferentes a sus vecinos. Entonces, ¿por qué razón pudieron evitar guerras civiles, regímenes militares, golpes de estado y crímines contra la humanidad? Las respuestas de estos ensayistas lo sorprenderán.
