Finding Our Way: Toward Maturity In U.S.-Latin American Relations

By Howard J. Wiarda

American Enterprise Institute, 1988, 304 pp.

A handy compilation of 15 essays by an academic Latin Americanist well connected with the Washington policymaking community during the Reagan years. Although the book suffers from some of the repetition and internal contradictions that almost inevitably mar such endeavors, the volume's main argument emerges clearly: "The Reagan administration's Latin American policy has evolved significantly since January 1981 and become far more nuanced and mature." A stimulating work.
