The United States and Latin America Summary


The United States and Latin America: The New Agenda by Edited by V. Bulmer-Thomas

The end of the Cold War removed hemispheric security from the top of the agenda of US-Latin American relations. Democracy, trade and investment, drugs and migration rose in importance. Pressures to eliminate the anachronistic US embargo on Cuba increased. The new agenda also includes Latin America's growing ties to the countries of the European Union and other regions. The book contains 15 essays by US, Latin American and European scholars on each of these issues, framed by overviews of the changing historical context from the 19th century to the end of the Cold War. Authors include John Coatsworth, Jorge Dominguez and Marcelo Suarez-Orozco.

The United States and Latin America Reviews


In some of the best essays, [the book's contributors] provide detailed analyses of the ways in which the counter-narcotics drive of the US generated resentment and undermines nascent democratic institutions in Mexico, Colombia and Bolivia. Elizabeth Joyce's superbly nuanced account of the US drug policy helps us to understand the inconsistencies and apparent irrationality of the annual 'certification' process, in which the US unilaterally grades countries on their cooperation with the drug war and imposes sanctions on those who fail the test.--George Vickers "Times Literary Supplement "
Without exception, the articles are of high quality and should be of interest to a wide variety of scholars interested in Latin America.--J. S. Robey "Choice "
An interesting and provocative discussion of the U.S.-Latin American relations from a largely European perspective. This fine collection of essays brings together senior American scholars, such as John Coatsworth and Jorge Dom nguez, with British and Latin American experts. The book's strength lies in its strong contextual approach, underscoring the historical continuities in U.S. behavior toward Latin America.--Kenneth Maxwell "Foreign Affairs "
