The Historical Dictionary of Inter-American Organizations covers the changing world of inter-American and international organizations that have played an important role in bilateral and multilateral efforts to solve a wide range of problems that have confronted the nations of the Western Hemisphere. The Latin American region is clearly more integrated regionally and internationally than in previous decades and is better prepared to confront a broad range of problems—trade, development, illicit drugs, terrorism and guerrilla activity, health, environment, democratization, trade, human rights, intervention, electoral assistance, peacekeeping and conflict resolutions, migration, border conflicts, corruption, and energy independence—that governments and non-governmental organizations face in the 21st century. The role of the United States in Latin America has clearly faded since the end of the Cold War and the second edition of this book fills a large void in explaining the complexities of inter-American organizations and their activities since the first edition was completed in the late 1990s.

This updated second edition of Historical Dictionary of Inter-American Organizations covers the history of through a chronology, an introductory essay, appendixes, and an extensive bibliography. The dictionary section has over 400 hundred cross-referenced entries on important personalities, politics, economy, foreign relations, religion, and culture. This book is an excellent access point for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about Inter-American Organizations.

Review:

Since the Internet has changed the face of reference, many ready-reference resources have evolved and adapted. This historical dictionary, now in its second edition, is one such reference source that includes more contextual information to help users find their way in the information universe. Inter-American organizations can be tricky for students to research, given the difficulty of identifying them and finding sufficient resources on individual entities. Dent and Wilson provide students with the background they need in order to research effectively. The introduction discusses definitions of inter-American organizations to lay the foundation for the scope of the resource. Discussions of the form, function, and history of inter-American organizations are clear and concise, with illustrative examples. The entries provide brief but detailed overviews, along with cross-references. Appendixes provide information on leaders, memberships, conferences, and more. The bibliography is well researched and includes both classic and current references for further research. . . .The overall coverage gives readers enough basic information and suggested resources to start a successful research project. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower- and upper-level undergraduates; general readers. (CHOICE)

This text starts out with a list of abbreviations and acronyms, followed by a chronological listing of inter-American organizations, an introduction that gives general information on the roles of inter-American organizations in the twenty-first century, and then the main portion of the book—a dictionary listing organization, significant leaders, founders, and key members. Inter-American organizations have played a key role in bilateral and multilateral efforts to solve a range of problems in the Americas, including those of drugs, terrorism, human rights, migration, border conflicts, and political corruption. Definitions run from a few lines to a couple of pages in length. The dictionary is followed by a detailed bibliography arranged alphabetically by subject. This type of information is often scattered and difficult to find. Therefore, this publication will be essential for anyone interested in inter-American organizations. This new edition provides more than 400 entries. The book is of average paper, font size, and binding quality. It will be useful to students and researchers. It should be in all political and international libraries. (American Reference Books Annual)
