Neighborly Adversaries: Readings in U.S.-Latin American Relations
Michael J. LaRosa, Frank O. Mora
Rowman & Littlefield, 2007 - Political Science - 371 pages
Providing a balanced and interdisciplinary interpretation, this comprehensive reader traces the troubled U.S.–Latin American relationship from the beginning of the nineteenth century to the post 9/11 period. Thoroughly revised and updated, the second edition includes original essays on critical issues such as immigration and the environment. In addition, a new section helps students 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, part introductions, 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.
