Summary
"Harrison continues his provocative but hardly novel thesis established in prior works, that the most important factor explaining US and Canadian 'progress' and Latin American 'underdevelopment' is 'the contrast between Anglo-Protestant and Ibero-Catholic culture.' Thus his answer to subtitle question is 'not necessarily' but a successful process will be very difficult"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 57.
