Abstract:

This Note surveys changes that occurred in the various geopolitical and geostrategic dimensions of the Caribbean Basin in two time periods 1960 and 1980. Although different parts of the data base have appeared in several sources, the Note for the first time synthesizes and assesses this information in ways that readily identify major changes and trends in the Basin--often dramatic--that took place during the two decades before the Central American crisis and increased U.S. involvement in that part of the Basin. The areas looked at include political, economics, demographic, and military profiles, as well as Soviet and Cuban presence.
