Plan Colombia: Reality of the Colombian Crisis and Implications for Hemispheric Security. Authored by Dr. Luz E. Nagle.
The author analyzes Colombia's problems and makes recommendations regarding what it will take to achieve stated U.S. and Colombian objectives in that crisis situation. She also examines the concomitant issue of "spillover" from the Colombian crisis into the rest of the Latin American region.
