Report on the Americas is a bi-monthly magazine which reports on political developments in Latin America. PLN readers will find the September/October, 1996 issue of interest. Titled "Injustice for All: Crime and Impunity in Latin America," articles discuss the collapse of the Venezuelan prison system; the use, and abuse, of anonymous, hooded judges in Columbia; U.S. support for the Haitian police and state sponsored violence against "social undesirables" throughout Latin America. The most interesting essay, "Law and Order?" by Paul Chevigny, examines police violence across the Americas, highlighting the fact that the "war on crime" is not an exclusively American phenomenon. Subscriptions are $27 a year for six issues. Write: NACLA, 475 Riverside Dr. Suite 454, New York, NY 10115.
