President Reagan’s Policy Toward El Salvador: Success or Failure?
Michael A. Hammer
In 1981, the Reagan administration took office pledging to restore America’s global influence, especially in Latin America, where administration officials blamed former President Carter’s policies for leading to the near-victory of a Marxist-Leninist insurgency in El Salvador. Michael A. Hammer, in a series of interviews with key American and Salvadoran officials, details how circumstances forced the Reagan administration’s policies to change, and even to resemble those of his predecessor. In protracted warfare, Hammer argues, executive policy must reflect congressional consensus or lose funding. In El Salvador the result has been an American foreign policy that seeks to promote progressive change rather than reinforce the reactionary status quo.
Chinese Military Modernization and the Open Door Policy
Sam B. Rovit
When China began to open its doors to the West, party leaders gave top priority to economic development, deemphasizing the role of the military. Deng Xiaoping himself stated that the international situation made it possible for China to spend less on defense and more on economic construction. But the military has not been entirely neglected in the pursuit of these new policies. Sam Rovit focuses on what the Open Door has meant for the Chinese military – and concludes that its gains from Westernization have been substantial.
Capital Market Innovations: A Way to Increase Developing Country Issues
The international bond markets have failed to realize their potential as a source of development financing. Legal restrictions imposed by the member countries of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development have combined with structural and financial constraints faced by the developing countries to inhibit the issuing of bonds. Investors in developed countries have been discouraged from buying these bonds for the same reasons. In this article, Scott Shane examines a number of capital market innovations that can help overcome these hurdles.
Daggers in the Air: Anti-Satellite Weapons and International Law
Andrew D. Burton
Space law is rapidly becoming one of the most important areas in the development of public international law. Arms control issues, the Strategic Defense Initiative and recent developments in military satellite technology make space law particularly relevant to international security issues today. In this paper, Andrew Burton analyzes the relationship between space law and anti-satellite weapons. He places his discussion within the broader context of arms control negotiations and makes several observations about the future of space weapons and law.
