Democracy and U.S. Policy in Latin America during the Truman Years


Democracy and U.S. Policy in Latin America during the Truman Years by

A reinterpretation of US foreign policy in Latin America during the Truman presidency. It examines the interaction between US policy and political developments in Latin America to show how ideas for pursuing the common good were more influential than notions of US economic and political interests.


A work of solid scholarship that challenges the notion of the United States as the 'rampant eagle
in its relations with Latin America

... will appeal to specialists in Latin American studies, U.S. diplomatic history, and international relations, and will likely make the required reading lists of graduate students in these fields.
