'This is a richly textured collection of original papers by prominent scholars identifying the central ambiguities, successes and failures of efforts to achieve inter-American cooperation. The essays, written to coincide with the Fifth Summit of the Americas, are engaging. The challenges offered to some prevailing paradigms are stimulating, making for excellent analyses of the issues.' Anthony T. Bryan, Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), Washington, DC, USA 'Comprehensive, intelligent, and current this work advances both the analysis and the cause of inter-American cooperation because it informs and illuminates the choices that governments and citizens face today.' Jorge I. Dominguez, Harvard University, USA 'This book highlights the real merits of good edited collections. It addresses an important and timely issue, brings together many of the leading authorities on that issue, organises their thinking in a coherent way, and sets the results of these deliberations before readers in a speedy fashion. Congratulations and thanks to Mace, Cooper and Shaw!' Tony Payne, University of Sheffield, UK 'This book is priceless to any professor of an international institution as a case-by-case scenario covering the contemporary debates about regionalization in Latin American.' - Itzel Barrera De Diego, Latin American Policy (2011, 2:2, pp.319-326)
