Third Century : U.s.-latin American Relations Since 1889 (Hardcover) (Mark Gilderhus & Michael J. Larosa
about this item
This completely revised and updated text focuses on U.S. relations with Latin America from the advent of the New Diplomacy late in the nineteenth century to the present. Providing a balanced perspective, it presents both the U.S. view that the Western Hemisphere needed to unite under a common democratic, capitalistic society, and Latin American countries’ response to U.S. attempts to impose these goals on its southern neighbors. The authors examine the reciprocal interactions between the two regions, each with distinctive purposes, outlooks, interests, and cultures. They also place U.S.–Latin American relations within the larger global political and economic context.
