The period between the end of the Second World War and the beginning of the Cold War (1944-45 to 1947-48) represents an important conjuncture in the political and social history of twentieth-century Latin America. Despite differences in political regime, different levels of economic and social development, and different relations with the United States, there are striking similarities in the experiences of most Latin American republics at this time. The initial democratization and attempts at reform were eventually suppressed during the shift to the right at the beginning of the Cold War.
