Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This perceptive book critically explores why the United States continues to pursue failed policies in Latin America. Leading scholars explain how policies intended to promote the rule of law instead generate corruption and institutional crisis, why policies seeking to promote democratization and stabilization instead generate populist authoritarianism and destabilization, and why the war on drugs and the war on terror have neither reduced narcotics trafficking nor increased citizen security in the region. Reviewing official policy and its defenders and critics alike, this indispensable book focuses on the reasons for the failure of U.S. policies and their disastrous significance for both Latin America and the United States.

Book News Annotation:

Why, asks Loveman (political science, San Diego State U.), does the United States continue to pursue policies that exacerbate Latin America's woes rather than ameliorate them and that fail to promote Washington's declared goals of promoting democracy, human rights, the war on drugs, and favoring free trade and increased foreign investment? The country case studies he presents attempt to answer that question by reviewing American policy towards Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, Peru, Brazil in the post-Cold War years and describing reactions to those policies by Latin American political and economic actors, including the growing social movements of the region. In addition to the country studies, a number of papers discuss the overall security and defense policy of the United States and the European Union toward the Andean region.
