Editorial Reviews

Kryzanek (political science, Bridgewater State College) examines the evolution of U.S. Latin American relations, policy making, and the key issues involved in this intimate and sometimes antipathetic relationship. From the Monroe doctrine to the Clinton administration, the author charts the changing relationship between the U.S. and Latin American countries, and how both governmental and non-governmental influences have contributed to shifts in attitude and policy. He argues that the "human element" is an equally important factor in the interconnectedness of economic and political decision making. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
