520    The Organization of American States (OAS) is the world's 
       oldest regional multifunctional organization. This work 
       provides a clear and comprehensive discussion of this 
       important body, dealing with security, technical 
       cooperation, and the construction of democratic 
       institutions. Providing an incisive analysis of the 
       history, decision making procedures, relevance, functions,
       and operations of the OAS, this book also examines the 
       organization in the context of the web of international 
       and regional institutions that deal with global governance
       and international politics in the Western Hemisphere. In 
       this accessible and concise text, Mônica Herz seeks to 
       move beyond the well-studied roles of the OAS as a tool of
       foreign policy and assess the increasing significance of 
       its independent normative and operational activities. 
       Providing an important resource to those seeking to fully 
       understand the activities and impact of the OAS, this work
       will be essential reading for all students of Latin 
       American politics, international organization, and global 
       governance
