Epilogue: The Fable of the Shark and the Piranhas
This collection provides new information and analytical perspectives on how the forces of globalization and regional integration are altering the basic nature of interactions between the states, non-state actors and peoples of the Americas. The authors examine and assess the effects of the United States government's doctrines of unilateralism and preemptive action on Inter-American relations; they analyze the role of civil society and non-state actors such as transnational companies, non-governmental organizations, and new political movements in the relations between the states and societies of the Americas; and they reveal the extent to which the above processes and conditions are affecting economic, political, social, and cultural developments at the local level (and vice-versa).
