Exiting the Whirlpool by Robert A. Pastor

Book Description

In this second edition of Exiting the Whirlpool, Pastor explores the continuities and the changes in U.S. foreign policy toward Latin America under Presidents Carter, Reagan, Bush, and Clinton. Whereas many foreign policy volumes neglect the role of Congress, Pastor devotes an entire chapter to explaining how it has shaped policy. Next, he looks at the recurring challenges that have often pulled the United States into the destructive whirlpool--how the United States has tried but often failed to manage succession crises, pre-empt or undermine revolutionaries, promote or manipulate elections, and encourage or neglect the region's economic development. Pastor offers a series of far-reaching policy recommendations for exiting the whirlpool and forging a hemispheric community of democracies within a free trade area. The first edition was widely acclaimed. The second is thoroughly updated, offering analyses and recommendations for addressing the contemporary democratic and security challenges facing the hemisphere.

Not Condemned to Repetition by Robert A. Pastor Not Condemned to Repetition, Paperback (January 2002)

The Nicaraguan challenge faced by the US since the 1970s was to establish a democratic and autonomous government, with as much support and as little interference as possible. This work shows how Nicaragua and the United States were prisoners of history and how they finally escaped.

Democracy in the Caribbean by Robert A. Pastor Democracy in the Caribbean, Paperback (April 1993)

Caribbean area specialists offer both global and regional perspectives in an effort to explain the surprising rate of democratization in the Caribbean. The authors suggest that the parliamentary system of colonial and protectorate rule forms a basis for successful democratization.
