Reviews of Lost Illusions: Latin America’s Struggle for Democracy, as Recounted by Its Leaders

“Paul was one of the stars of the Foreign Service.”
— Cyrus Vance, former Secretary of State under President Jimmy Carter

“I know no better analysis of the prospects for democracy in Latin America — and of the new challenges posed to U.S. foreign policy there — than this. For those who have time for only one book about the Americas, this is it. Here are the authentic voices of this Hemisphere, brought together in high focus by one who knows the region as few others do.”
— William D. Rogers, Assistant Secretary of State for Inter-American Relations, 1974-1976

“This is a unique and valuable book. The author has engaged an impressive array of Latin American leaders in wide-ranging discussions concerning the fate of democracy and U.S. policy in the Western Hemisphere.”
— Lee H. Hamilton, United States House of Representatives, Chairman of the Committee on Foreign Affairs
