This volume focuses on the contemporary political, economic and security affairs of the Western Hemisphere. Following a decade of focus on economic matters around the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA), the authors argue that the Bush Doctrine formed in the wake of 9/11 has resulted in a renewed U.S. concentration on security matters.
