Dominguez has drawn together fifteen leading scholars on international relations and comparative politics from Latin America, the Caribbean, and the United States, thus bringing to bear varying national perspectives from several corners of the hemisphere to analyze the intersection between regional security issues and the democracy building process in Latin America.
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.
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.
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.
Jorge I. Dominguez is director of the Center for International Affairs at Harvard University, a past president of the Latin American Studies Association, and a founder and associated fellow of the Inter-American Dialogue.
