Soviet-Latin American Relations in the 1980s
Soviet-Latin American Relations in the 1980s
Edited by Augusto Varas
Westview Press, 1987, 290 pp

Three of these essays, written for the most part by Latin American academics, are devoted to regional overviews of the Latin American relationship with the Soviet Union, and the balance of the book offers national case studies investigating it in more detail. Cuba and Nicaragua figure prominently, but there is also good material on Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Peru and Costa Rica.
