Rift and Revolution: The Central American Imbroglio

By Howard J. Wiarda | Go to book overview

Foreword

Central America and U.S. policy in that region have become major public policy issues in the United States. With this book and other publications of the American Enterprise Institute, we have joined the discussion. This is a study that explores the background of the Central American crisis from the points of view of both the domestic causes of the crisis and the international dimensions of it. It is a major study, the result of a long-term and continuing research undertaking.

For some time AEI has had a strong research and policy interest in Latin America. We have previously published studies of Mexico, the Caribbean, Brazil, Cuba, Puerto Rico, the transfer of nuclear technology to Latin America, trade patterns, U.S. foreign policy toward the region, and other topics. AEI resident scholars and fellows, both former and present, not only have written some of the best studies of the area but also have been strongly involved in influencing the policy process. Many of our analysts have gone directly into the government or have been consulted by the government in various ways.

In this book Howard Wiarda, director of our Center for Hemispheric Studies, has brought together some of the foremost scholars in Latin American studies. All have had extensive, direct research experience in Central America; almost all the scholars here represented have testified before the National Bi-Partisan (Kissinger) Commission on Central America. They are serious scholars and writers, and they have produced a careful, balanced book. The book is public policy oriented, it is grounded on solid, empirical research, and its authors present judicious conclusions and recommendations. There is a considerable background to this book. It has emerged from a series of conferences, seminars, and panel discussions held at AEI over the past several years. These have been lively and thoughtprovoking discussions addressing a variety of issues from diverse points of view. Some of the initial findings and statements were first published by the authors in article form and in a special issue of the AEI Foreign Policy and Defense Review, "The Crisis in Central America (vol. four, no. two, 1982)," with Howard J. Wiarda serving as guest editor.
