Very good. Minor sticker residue on front cover. ix, , 134 p. Footnotes. Illustrations. Map. Acronyms and Abbreviations. Over the past two decades, the United States has spent billions of dollars and expended significant manpower in the Andes to stem the flow of illegal drugs northward; assist local security forces in the fight against drugs, terror, and insurgency; and promote free markets, human rights, and democratic consolidation. Yet the democracies of the Andean region---Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia---remain on the brink of collapse. The prospect of regional chaos poses a serious threat to the U.S. goal of achieving democracy, prosperity, and security in the hemisphere.
