About this book

This book looks at the evolution of the Organization of American States (OAS) multilateralism for democracy and the lessons its experience holds for other multilateral contexts. It also tackles the theoretical challenge of bridging the traditional divide between international relations and comparative politics.

Reviews

"This volume is an important contribution to the discussion of multilateralism and the defense of democracy. Focusing on the OAS, the authors provide a clear explanation of the complexities of multilateral action in defense of democracy, a candid evaluation of the constraints on the OAS, and a hopeful appraisal of the new multilateralism in support of democracy in the hemisphere. This is a book that all students of hemispheric affairs will want to read." - Joseph Tulchin, Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholar

"Cooper and Legler have written a very important and impressive book, at the intersection of democracy and multilateralism in the Americas. Their argument about the role the OAS has played in Peru and Venezuela is highly persuasive, and buttressed by detailed, scrupulous research and a solid conceptual framework. This timely book offers invaluable policy guidance, and should be read by both practitioners and scholars. It is commendably level-headed, yet inspired by a deep concern for collectively defending and promoting democracy in the Americas."

- Michael Shifter, Vice President for Policy, Inter-American Dialogue and Adjunct Professor, Georgetown University

"Tom Legler and Andrew Cooper have written a penetrating and authoritative book about the promotion and defense of democracy in the Americas. "Intervention without Intervening" should be read by everyone interested in international aspects of democratization. It appraises a model of collective support for democracy based on multilateralism and soft power, not unilateralism and military intervention. This is a timely and readable account of how the international community can better support new democracies in Latin America."

- Maxwell A. Cameron, Department of Political Science, the University of

British Columbia

"This an important study of regional evolution and integration." - A. Siaroff, University of Lethbridge, Choice Magazine
