The article presents information on radical sociology and the revival of democracy in South America. In Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil, democratic governments have taken the place of authoritarian military governments. The democratic governments are making efforts to restore fundamental human rights. In the 1960's, there was a social unrest in South American countries, in which student movements took interest. According to the student leaders, the social and political unrest was due to economic problems, like the need to develop heavy industries, and political and military dependence on the U.S.
