The Future of Central America: Policy Choices for the U.S. and Mexico

Edited by Richard R. Fagen and Olga Pellicer

Stanford University Press, 1983, 228 pp.

These two volumes inaugurate a new series, binational in conception and authorship. The first book consists of 18 papers, on trade, energy, national security, agriculture, employment and migration, and long-term prospects. The second contains ten chapters covering, inter alia, the effects of the policies of the two countries on each other, and their perceptions of the Central American crisis. The thrust of this volume supports open recognition of radical movements in Central American countries, coupled with their nonalignment in international affairs.
