The authors of this timely book give a promising and hopeful response." --Ricardo Lagos, President of Chile, 2000-06 "This useful volume by a stellar group of experts should be warmly welcomed by the Obama administration as it tries to reset the course of U.S. policy toward the Americas based on mutual respect and convergence of interests." --Ambassador Thomas Pickering, Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs, 1997-2001 "This timely, pragmatic volume recommends a more strategic U.S. approach to Latin America based on constructive and focused inter-American partnerships on the issues that matter most to our people's daily lives, such as democracy and the rule of law, energy, immigration, jobs, and the environment.
