“This is a very good book. The essays are adequately researched, well written and reach a high standard of scholarship and analysis. The paired commentaries also reach a high standard of analysis. . . . Several themes come through loud and clear. For example, the need to disaggregate Latin America, and the elision of the strict distinction between global, hemispheric and bilateral issues.”—International Affairs

“The book should be read by all who have responsibility for inter-American relations.”—World Affairs Report

“What makes each of the parts and the book as a whole so valuable is that each section contains contributions on each topic by Latin American, as well as U.S., authors. . . . excellent, highly informative, and well-researched.”—Hispanic American Historical Review

“This important book consists of twenty-two articles originally commissioned as background papers for the Woodrow Wilson International Center. . . . The authors, all specialists, assess the problems and policies from as many different viewpoints as possible. . . .[which] illustrates why this book is so intellectually stimulating.”—Perspective

Major political and economic events of the 1980s such as the international debt crisis, the 1982 Falklands War, the return to democratic rule in a number of countries, and the prolonged crisis in Central America, focused great attention on the U.S. and its dealings in Latin America. In this volume, experts from Latin America, the United States and Europe offer profound insights on the state of U.S.-Latin American relations, external debt and capital flows, trade relations, democracy, human rights, migration, and security during the 1980s.
