Author: Mauricio Font

This book follows ten political economic histories since the 1970s, showing how different forms of partnership have developed, flourished or declined over the time. The author’s argument is supported by rich empirical material. It places partnership schemes in a broader social context and provides a deep insight into the phenomenon.
