Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Boeker, president of the independent Institute of the Americas, interviewed 26 Latin American leaders in 1988. This book is a verbatim collection of those interviews, which focused on the theme of democractic revival in the region and therefore includes only those leaders of countries where democratic revival is in progress. The author provides a coherent introduction and conclusion on democracy's tenuousness in Latin America and U.S. involvement. The unique composition of these interviews has not been previously duplicated, the closest approximation being John Gunther's portraits in the 1940s. Although Boeker asks challenging questions, many of the best insights come from the juxtaposition of interviews with presidents and opposition leaders. Highly recommended.-- Roderic A.
