Bibliographical Note

T he Columbus Memorial Library, Pan American Union, Washington, D.C., provides a convenient and well-organized concentration of extensive and diverse materials on the subject of inter-American security cooperation. Here is assembled the documentation of the conferences and the activities of the OAS, and its precursors, with a degree of completeness not to be found elsewhere. Much of this material has been published, of course, by the Pan American Union and is available in various libraries.

A valuable Bibliografía de las Conferencias Interamericanas was published by the Pan American Union in 1954. It contains a listing not only of the official documents of the conferences and meetings from 1889 to 1951 but also of books, articles, and other materials relating to the conferences. The Indice por materias de los diversos instrumentos interamericanos, suscritos o aprobados en las conferencias panamericanas principales de 1889 a 1951 ( 1953) is a subject index to the conventions and resolutions of the American conferences. Equally valuable as a bibliographical aid is the monthly issue of the Pan American Union: List of books accessioned and periodical articles indexed in the Columbus Memorial Library. This index to the periodical literature of Latin America covers a wide selection of periodicals and is a handy guide to Latin-American opinion on the subject of inter- American cooperation.

A listing of special publications of the Pan American Union, pertinent to security cooperation, includes the following: Improvement and Coordination of Inter-American Peace Instruments, 5 vols. ( 1944); Report on the Activities of the Organization of American States, 1948-1953 ( 1953); Manual of Inter-American Relations ( 1956); Inter-American Treaties and Conventions ( 1957); Aplicaciones del Tratado Interamericano de Asistencia Reciproca, 1948-1958 ( 1959); and Bilateral Treaty Developments in Latin America, 3 vols. ( 1938-55). Since 1933, in compliance with a resolution adopted by the Seventh Inter-American Conference of American States, the Pan American Union has issued semiannually (more or less), a Status of the Pan American Treaties and Conventions, showing the ratification record of the respective American republics.

The annual reports of the Director-General of the Pan American Union,
