What People are Saying About This

Howard J. Wiarda

"Michael Kryzanek has written a wonderful book on U.S.-Latin American relations. Well written, well organized, fair, and balanced, this book surveys the history of hemispheric relations, the major actors involved, and today's hot issues: drugs, immigration, and globalization. It should be the main text in every course on inter-American relations."

Henry Dietz

"This thoroughly updated edition should be welcomed by all who teach Latin American politics or US-Latin American relations. While he has maintained the strengths of previous editions, Kryzanek provides provocative discussions of current issues, especially immigration, globalization, and the so-called Pink Tide. The book provides a great deal of information without burying the reader extraneous details, thereby making it pedagogically very useful indeed."
