The Reagan record-the man, the administration, the internal political wars, and the lack of coordination-is thoroughly explicated. The Bush administration, including the Panamanian intervention, is also analyzed. Bilateral relations are illuminated in the essays concerning Cuba, Mexico, and Brazil. Throughout, the writers look to the future to warn us not to dismiss the importance of these countries.
