For the past century, international organizations have been a central part of inter-American relations and diplomatic history, often serving as important political mechanisms for confronting a host of multilateral issues affecting the United States and the other American and Commonwealth states that constitute the Western Hemisphere. This book provides a balanced and up-to-date analysis of inter-American organizations with more than 400 entries covering all of the regional economic, political, and security organizations along with the major leaders, key historical events, and significant trends in inter-American relations. Most entries deal with the nature and role of inter-governmental organizations (IGOs), but there is also a section on non-governmental organizations (NGOs) active in the region. Historical coverage runs from the early 1800s and the beginning of Latin American independence, through the early post-Cold War period. Features a historical overview of the organizations, chronology, bibliography, and nine appendixes, including the Charter of the Organization of American States.
Larman C. Wilson is Professor Emeritus, International Relations, at American University. David W. Dent is Professor of Political Science at Towson State University in Baltmore.
