Former visiting fellows Evelyn Huber (Fall ’87, Fall ’10), the Morehead Alumni Distinguished Professor of Political Science, and John D. Stephens (Fall ’87, Fall ’10), Gerhard E. Lenski, Jr. Distinguished Professor of Political Science and Sociology, both at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, have just published Democracy and the Left: Social Policy and Inequality in Latin America (University of Chicago Press, 2012), which they worked on during their most recent Kellogg residency.

Another former visiting fellow, Kurt Weyland (’91, 2004–05), calls it a “theoretically profound, empirically thorough, and wide-ranging work that advances the more optimistic view that democracy itself plays a crucial role in stimulating redistribution in Latin America and that the political left is the most important agent in effecting this change.”
