Britain and Latin America in the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries
Part of the "Studies in Modern History" series, this text examines the relationship between Latin America and Britain during the 19th- and 20th-centuries. The first full-length survey of Britain's role in Latin America as a whole from the early 1800s to the 1950s, when influence in the region passed to the United States. Rory Miller examines the reasons for the rise and decline of British influence, and reappraises its impact on the Latin American states. Did it, as often claimed, circumscribe their political autonomy and inhibit their economic development? This sustained case study of imperialism and dependency will have an interest beyond Latin American specialists alone.
