As the prime force behind trade throughout the Western Hemisphere, the United States is emerging with two trade projects—the newly-signed North American Free Trade Agreement and the projected New American Community. This volume provides a clear, concise guide to all aspects of the 5-volume NAFTA accord, its side agreements, and the unfolding New American Community. It covers specific issues, rationalizations, ideologies, controversies, and recommended actions. With special emphasis on the North American Free Trade Agreement, the volume will provide a major resource for both academics and decision makers in industry and government.

Written by a leading authority on U.S. Latin American trade, the volume includes entries, arranged alphabetically, on NAFTA and other trade-related topics. The NAFTA entries are based on the five-volume treaty or official government and nongovernmental publications. Since the New American Community is still emerging, the non-NAFTA entries are interpolations from past trade accords and existing nationwide agreements or ideas based on global concepts and directives, especially the European Union.

Editorial Reviews

A concise guide to two US trading projects--the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), negotiated and signed with Canada and Mexico; and the New American Community (NAC), a projected expansion to incorporate, at varying moments, nations of Central and South America, plus the islands of the Caribbean, to one day form a colossus of more than 40 nations with a population exceeding 700 million. Drawn from numerous official sources, with special emphasis on interpreting key issues of NAFTA, the encyclopedia covers specific issues, rationalizations, ideologies, controversies, and recommended actions to increase understanding in the pursuit of cooperation and productivity.
