The Democracy Perspective in the Americas presents the author's views on the evolution of democracy in the American hemisphere and the challenges confronting this form of governance. It comprises a collection of his statements and published commentaries on the perspective of democracy from 1993 to 2008, while serving as Guyana's Ambassador to the United States at the Organization of American States (OAS) and in Venezuela. At the OAS, in particular, Ishmael was deeply involved in diplomatic discussions, in which he presented his perspective of the promotion and development of the democratic process at forums dealing with the organization's agenda. Since 2004, Ishmael has participated in numerous high-level meetings of the newly-established Union of South American Nations, enabling him to present a front-row view of the political, economic, social, and ideological challenges facing the advance of democracy and the integration of the South American nations.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A smart, serious...great leader, and an excellent spokesman for the Caribbean. -- Dr. Cesar Gaviria, Secretary General of the OAS (1994-2004) and former president of Colombia
The Caribbean contribution to the OAS is personified in the virtues of Ambassador Ishmael, through his intellectual force, his wisdom, his dignity. -- Esteban Tomic, former ambassador of Chile to the OAS
A welcome addition to Latin Americana. Because of his uncommonly good grounding in this vast area, he has been able to handle it with unusual success. -- Dr. Saroja Sundararajan, Indian historian and author
Ishmael writes in a clear, forthright, unbiased manner, covering a wide range of matters of common concern to the citizens of the region. -- Gary Girdhari, Ph.D., editor, Guyana Journal, New York
I value Ambassador Ishmael's insight into Latin American affairs and always learn something from his analyses. -- James Morrison, The Washington Times
On reading the many chapters at leisure or for reference, nuggets of insights are there for the picking. * Vheadline.Com, February 2010 *
Everything he writes is well worth reading. -- Janet Jagan, former president of Guyana
