    “Big Business and Dictatorships in Latin America represents not only a praiseworthy collaboration between scholars based in Latin America, the United States, and Europe but also a truly interdisciplinary and richly documented investigative effort to provide new knowledge and, perhaps more importantly, directions and perspectives for future work in the field. … Big Business and Dictatorships in Latin America fulfills its promise to provide an interdisciplinary collective analysis of corporate interests and dictatorships.” (Rafael R. Ioris, Hispanic American Historical Review, Vol. 102 (3), 2022)
