Arising from the Ford Foundation Southampton project on North/South security relations, this study focuses on the concept of security in Central America and the Caribbean, and on perceptions by states in the region of the rival claims of political independence, economic well-being, national security, and regional stability. Specific case studies are combined with theoretical analysis in this integrated assessment of the Central American situation that includes contributions from leading scholars in the United Kingdom, United States, and Central America.
