This book address the challenges inherent in protecting consensus and political stability while also seeking solutions to the political, social, and economic problems that have yet to be resolved in the post-authoritarian era. The text examines the dilemmas Chilean president Michele Bachelet faces, while also acknowledging the progress she has made. In many ways, given the country's political and economic stability, the Chilean model—even during Bachelet's tenure—has been very successful. Nonetheless, important challenges continue to bedevil the Concertaciόn in a number of different policy areas, though in fact as Bachelet's term comes to a close, her personal popularity has once again risen. The different chapters in this book provide an assessment of the administration's performance and focus on two interrelated sets of issues: the limits of the political system and the nature of socioeconomic policies.

Keywords:   post-authoritarian era, Michele Bachelet, Chilean model, Concertaciόn, political system
