Overview

This book examines U.S.–Latin American relations from an historical, contemporary, and theoretical perspective. By drawing examples from the distant and more recent past—and interweaving history with theory—Williams illustrates the enduring principles of International Relations theory and provides students the conceptual tools to make sense of inter-American relations. It is a masterful guide for how to organize facts, think systematically about issues, weigh competing explanations, and confidently draw your own conclusions regarding the past, present, and future of international politics in the region.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Understanding U.S.–Latin American Relations is a sophisticated, clearly written, and well-argued overview of the changing relations between the United States and the diverse countries of Latin America and the Caribbean, from the Monroe Doctrine in the early nineteenth century to the twenty-first century challenges of intermestic issues in a multipolar hemisphere and a transforming global context. It draws superbly both on key theoretical concepts of international relations and on deep knowledge of the history of inter-American affairs."
Abraham F. Lowenthal, Professor of International Relations, University of Southern California

"This book is a wonderful introduction to the evolution of U.S.–Latin American relations from the nineteenth century to the present. Its special virtue is its lucid, balanced, and systematic application of key international relations theories to hemispheric relations."
Cynthia McClintock, Professor of Political Science and International Affairs and Director, Latin American and Hemispheric Studies Program, George Washington University

"This book merges theory and history to illuminate U.S.–Latin American relations in a way that is interesting and stimulating. The text provides ample opportunities for students to consider the importance of theory for understanding international relations and brings Latin American studies into the mainstream. Faculty and students alike will find this a welcome and useful addition to the classroom."
David R. Mares, Institute of the Americas Chair for Inter-American Affairs, University of California, San Diego
