A Survey of Recent Developments

  • Paul A. TharpJr.


The articles in this chapter are introduced as a group rather than individually. The pieces by Mr. Nowzad and Dr. Baker are general surveys of recent developments in Africa and Latin America respectively. Both analyze the recent proliferation of regional and sub-regional organizations in these two continental areas. This ferment is indicative of the ongoing efforts to mold viable political institutions out of a confusing welter of nationalistic goals and aspirations in these regions.
