The Dominican Republic; nation in transition by Howard J Wiarda ( Book )
13 editions published between 1982 and 1992 in English and held by 892 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Much has occurred in the Dominican Republic since the first edition of this critically acclaimed profile was published ten years ago: Democratic government has become more firmly established, if no less contentious, and the fragile economy, though still the definitive element in Dominican life, has benefited from changes in global trade patterns and corporate investment. Yet the Dominican Republic remains a nation mired in poverty and social tension. As the country heads toward the quincentennial of Columbus's landing in the New World, there is both anticipation and apprehension as the citizenry looks back proudly to their heritage and forward to a future clouded by uncertainties. This edition examines the changing character of governance and the political changes that have returned Joaquin Balaguer to the presidency for an unprecedented sixth term. The economic transitions that have made the Dominican Republic an attractive site for foreign business and tourism are also addressed, along with the economic causes of urban and rural unrest and the emigration of Dominicans to Puerto Rico and the United States. Critical public policy issues such as energy, taxation, population control, and education are explored, together with the social and political conflicts created by debt, austerity, and fiscal reform. Finally, the authors analyze the Dominican Republic's relations with its neighbors and major trading partners, giving special emphasis to the impact of new global and regional ties. Throughout, they focus on the struggle to maintain democracy in the face of the inevitable dislocations caused by economic reform and modernization
Leaders, leadership, and U.S. policy in Latin America by Michael J Kryzanek ( Book )
7 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Because the governing framework in many Latin American countries is weak or unstable, the United States has often resorted to formulating and implementing policy based on its ability to deal with a wide array of national leaders, from military dictators to civilian politicians to Marxist revolutionaries. Leaders and leadership style are therefore important factors in U.S. perception of the region and in the development of policies that affect Latin American countries. In this book Michael Kryzanek examines the ways in which the critical interaction between individual leaders and the U.S. policy community affects the substance and direction of hemispheric relations. Throughout, the author uses case studies to illustrate how individual heads of state respond to the issues of drugs, debt, trade, and regional security. Such leaders as Salinas of Mexico, Gaviria of Colombia, Chamorro of Nicaragua, Endara of Panama, Cristiani of El Salvador, and Menem of Argentina are examined at close range to analyze their mode of operation and to assess their ability to attain national objectives in a region in which U.S. influence is substantial
