As the title indicates, this is a collection of documents, primarily speeches, dealing with disarmament during the year 1967. The major interest for the Latin Americanist is the large number of statements from Latin American countries and the United States relating to the Latin American nuclear-free zone. Although rather tedious reading, they do provide a basic outline of the problems which emerged during these negotiations.
The documents are arranged chronologically, but since the government can afford to do extensive indexing, the book is easy to use.
