"Admirably demonstrates the relationship between internal politics and international tension between Latin American states as well as the effects of drug trafficking on the Caribbean."--Choice, January 1999 Vol. 36 No. 5

“This book seeks to disentangle the complex relationship between democratization and international security in Central and South America. . . . Rather than advance a general theoretical argument, however, the book usefully underscores the complex relationship between regime change and security relations.”—Foreign Affairs, Nov-Dec 98

“This sophisticated and empirically-grounded collection, drawing on a number of Latin American and US scholars, illuminates important issues at the nexus between international conflict and domestic poltical transforamtions.” --Abraham F. Lowenthal, Pacific Council on International Policy

“A collection of fourteen essays by sixteen internationally respected specialists in the field that address a variety of regional peace and security issues. . . .Together, these essays advance understanding in a constantly changing area, and highlight the need for continued debate and awareness on this delicately balanced subject.”---The British Bulletin of Publications, April 2001
