Praeger | May 30, 2006 | English | ISBN: 0275982041 | 216 pages | PDF | 1 MB

The symbiotic relationship between the United States and Latin America has been filled with bitterness and anguish, on the one hand, and hope and cooperation, on the other. Each provides something the other lacks, and thus the relationship has the potential to work to the advantage of both. Brewer provides an introduction to the most important events in the diplomatic, military, social, and economic history of the relationship between the United States and countries of Latin America.

"Confronting the American Dream: Nicaragua Under U.S. Imperial Rule" by Michel Gobat

"Confronting the American Dream: Nicaragua Under U.S. Imperial Rule" by Michel Gobat
Duke University Press | 2005 | ISBN: 0822336472 0822336340 9780822336471 9780822387183 9780822336341 | 391 pages | PDF | 7 MB

This volume is one of the most important and revealing case studies in U.S.–Latin American relations. Drawing on extensive research in Nicaraguan and U.S. archives, Gobat accounts for two seeming paradoxes that have long eluded historians of Latin America: that Nicaraguans so strongly embraced U.S. political, economic, and cultural forms to defend their own nationality against U.S. imposition and that the country’s wealthiest and most Americanized elites were transformed from leading supporters of U.S. imperial rule into some of its greatest opponents.
