Featuring updates and revisions reflecting the latest policy changes and global events, U.S. and Latin American Relations, 2nd Edition offers in-depth theoretical and historical analyses to explore the complex dynamic between the United States and the various countries that comprise Latin America. Tracing the evolution of U.S.-Latin American relations from the 19th century to the present day, chapters reveal the shifting attitudes and policy approaches that have shaped current policies and may influence future regional relations. This new edition includes updated coverage of such issues as political economy, challenges to U.S. hegemony, immigration, human rights, and drug trafficking. Also addressed are potential consequences for the state of U.S.-Latin American relations in light of Edward Snowden’s 2013 leaked documents revealing how the NSA was conducting widespread surveillance of Latin American presidents—most notably Brazil’s Dilma Rousseff and Mexico’s Enrique Peña Nieto. Engagingly written, U.S. and Latin American Relations, 2nd Edition offers insights into the forces that have shaped U.S.-Latin American relations and the challenges that lie ahead in forging an equitable and enduring partnership in a rapidly changing world.
