The book is a good overview and just as any other should be approached in an objective manner. It served me well in looking for more resources and references used in other papers.

Addicted to Failure

Edited By Brian Loveman

Addicted to Failure is a series of country case studies that illustrates recent American policy towards Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, Peru, and Brazil and how those policies have both failed the strategic goals of the countries in the region as well as the United States. The case studies critically examine the second and third order affects that policies developed in the United States have had in the Andean Region with specific emphasis placed on the 3 D's; democracy, development and drugs. Additionally, the case studies provide the reader with an overview of current and recent historical, political, and economic actors, including the growing social movements of the region. Lastly, the case studies, discuss the overall security and defense policy of the United States and the European Union toward the Andean region.

The case studies are written by leading scholars of the region and a complete biography of each contributor is provided at the end of the book. The books editor Brian Loveman, is the Fred J. Hansen Chair for Peace Studies and professor of political science at San Diego University. The book is well sourced using numerous examples of speeches and interviews from the leading actors of the region as well as United States military leaders and policy makers.

The most interesting points of the case studies involve the role's of Columbia and the United States in the counter drug war within the Andean Region. The authors clearly point out the failure of the United States in combating the production of drugs, how the Bush administration has enlarged the definition of terrorist to include the drug cartels, and how foreign aid dollars to the countries in the region are directly tied to countering the production of drugs in each country. The results of this policy in the views of the authors is the undermining of democratic movements, lack of human rights within the region, economic underdevelopment and the continued contribution to corruption and destabilization within the region. The authors all make the case for strengthening democratic institutions and economic development while lessoning the need to combat drugs.

Addicted to failure is worth reading and extremely relevant in understanding our neighbors to the south. The book focuses on the reasons for the failure of U.S. policies and their disastrous significance for Latin America and the United States alike.
