It examines the strengths and limitations of our definition of a third left. The chapter elaborates how the four defining elementsautonomy, territorial control, horizontalidad or bottom-up participation, new social identitiesplay out in the actual movements in question. It examines the three main political directions adopted by adherents to the third left. The chapter also summarizes the key achievements of Latin Americas third left, and then considers at greater length some of the challenges facing this new brand of politics.
