Fifteen essays and seven comments, by U.S., Latin American and English contributors, analyze current relations between Latin America and the United States, emphasizing broad themes rather than nation-oriented accounts. Four categories of issues are thus presented: those dealing with economics, political and social matters, and security problems. There is also a long preface on change, complexity and contending perceptions, as well as statistical appendices.
