About this book

In this edited volume, scholars from Latin America and the United States will analyze how US foreign policy making circles have applied the concepts to the creation of new US security initiatives in the Latin American region during the post September 11, 2001 era.

Reviews

"This volume makes an important contribution to understanding the new geographies of power created by the end of the Cold War, the US war on drugs and war on terrorism discourse and policies, and the conflicts surrounding transnational networks ranging from migration to organized crime. Shifting the focus from states to 'ungoverned areas,' Latin American and US specialists offer valuable insights for scholars and students of globalization, foreign policy, security studies, and Latin America." - Richard Stahler-Sholk, affiliation TK
