February 11, 1986 | ABRAHAM F. LOWENTHAL, Abraham F. Lowenthal is a professor of international relations at USC and executive director of the Inter-American Dialogue. This commentary is excerpted from the current issue of Foreign Affairs, "America and the World, 1985," published by the Council on Foreign Relations.

In South America, the return to democracy has been the main political issue of the last five years.
