Altered States: Security and Demilitarization in Central America

By Adam Isacson

Center for International Policy, October 1997

Exhaustively surveys current sizes and roles of militaries in Central America, the range of threats to the region's security, the extent of current U.S. military assistance and linkages. Isacson argues that the region's militaries are irrevalent to today's security needs. He then lays out what must be done so that Central America can reduce the size of armies and eventually phase them out entirely.
