From the Publisher“The successor to United States-Latin American Relations, 18001850: The Formative Generations, edited by T. Ray Shurbutt (1991), this new collection of essays examines hemispheric relations during a period in which both the United States and the nations of Latin America had to establish themselves within a more economically-integrated world order.”
“Éste es un libro fascinador, rico en detalles.” [This is a fascinating book, rich in detail.]
“One virtue of this collection is that it balances the emphasis on resistance to Washington that completely dominates so many works (e.g. Peter Smith, Talons of the Eagle ) by examining Latin American strategies of collaboration to manipulate Washington in pursuit of specific geopolitical goals.”
—The Business History Review
"A very useful addition to the literature on 19th-century U.S.-Latin American relations."
—Ralph Lee Woodward, Tulane University
"Taken together, these case studies provide a judicious and balanced critique of hemispheric relations. The authors carefully consider the merits and liabilities of U.S. policy as well as the internal dynamics of the Latin American nations themselves."
—Allen Wells, Bowdoin College
