Handbook Of Latin American Studies
An impressive lineup. . . . Mora's and Hey's Introduction identifies crucial questions facing Latin American and Caribbean foreign policies, and constructs a useful 'levels of analysis' framework to provide a common point of departure for the . . . empirically rich case studies.
Journal Of Latin American Studies
Mora and Hey's book raises some critical questions about the extent to which Latin American republics might expect to exercise autonomy in their foreign relations in the early twenty-first century, or if the complementary forces of dependency and realism in international politics will continue to limit their room for maneuver….Such questions will remain at the center of debates on Latin American and Caribbean foreign policy for the foreseeable future.
Brittish Bulletin Of Publications
An extremely useful collection of essays.
David Scott Palmer
The comprehensiveness of treatment and consistent high quality of individual contributions make this work of particular value to students and foreign policy specialists alike. It is an absolutely essential text for courses on Inter-American relations and the foreign affairs of the Third World.
Juan Gabriel Tokatlian
Stimulating. . . . The authors provide a superb contribution by blending conceptual issues and empirical materials. I unreservedly recommend this volume, which will undoubtedly become a standard text for teachers and students of international relations and inter-American affairs.
CHOICE
This important book will appeal to a variety of audiences. Highly recommended.
Robert A. Pastor
For far too long, Latin America was seen as an object to be explained by U.S. foreign policy. Frank Mora and Jeanne Hey have given the region its voice by describing and explaining the foreign policies of most of the countries. This volume is a very helpful contribution to our understanding of inter-American relations in the post–Cold War era.
