Pressestimmen?Oliveri cogently and elegantly weaves a complex tapestry of the intricate relations among the three central actors of the 1980s debt crisis in Latin America: official institutions, debtors, and commerical banks. He challenges interpretations of the system of international finance as a regime with shared principles and rules and institutionalized decision making. This balanced and well-crafted explanation of the debt crisis and the lessons learned is strongly recommended. All levels.?-Choice
