Overview

The history of U.S.–Latin American relations has been marked by a complex fusion of tension, misperception, intervention, and cooperation. Providing a balanced and interdisciplinary interpretation, this comprehensive text reader traces the troubled relationship from the beginning of the nineteenth century to the present. Presenting seminal works that spawned an entire generation of revisionist scholarship, the editors have juxtaposed diverse views from both Latin American and U.S. academics and policymakers on a wide variety of issues spanning two centuries. This unique structure will help students to evaluate opinions while gaining a deeper understanding of the historical trajectory of scholarship and policies surrounding U.S.–Latin American relations. This format, together with the comprehensive scope of the readings, will encourage students to read across the disciplines—essential for generating meaningful dialogue. The readings are framed by the editors’ opening chapter on U.S.–Latin American relations and introductory essays for each part and each selection. Students who use this book will learn that U.S.–Latin American relations, although based on specific policies, actions, and theories, have been deeply influenced by dynamic, constantly evolving scholarly interpretations in both the United States and Latin America. Comprehensive in scope yet comparative and historical in organization and structure, this collection will benefit students and specialists of Latin American history, politics, and international relations alike.
