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 reader traces the troubled relationship from the beginning of the nineteenth century to the post-9/11 period.
Thoroughly revised and updated, this edition of Neighborly Adversaries includes original essays on critically important issues such as immigration and the environment. In addition, a new section helps students of history, political science, and international relations understand the most important themes and topics that unify and divide the United States and Latin American nations today. The readings are framed by the editors' opening chapter on the history of the relationship, introductory essays for each part, and abstracts for each selection. Methodologically interdisciplinary, yet comparative and historical in organization and structure, this collection will benefit students and specialists of Latin America's complex historical, social, and political relationship with its northern neighbor.
