9780742540460: Neighborly Adversaries: Readings in U.S.-Latin American Relations

The history of U.S.-Latin American relations has been marked by a complex fusion of tension, misperception, intervention, and cooperation. Providing a balanced and interdisciplinary interpretation, this comprehensive reader traces the troubled relationship from the beginning of the nineteenth century to the post-9/11 period. Thoroughly revised and updated, this edition of Neighborly Adversaries includes original essays on critically important issues such as immigration and the environment. In addition, a new section helps students of history, political science, and international relations 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, introductory essays for each part, 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.

Review:

[A] useful classroom supplement to any of the general surveys. Its excerpts from both primary and secondary sources reflect different disciplines and include texts by Latin American authors. LaRosa and Mora introduce and contextualize these excerpts to orient the reader. The book also includes an excellent bibliography for students looking to research and write about U.S.–Latin American relations. (Latin American Research Review)

An engaging collection of historical and contemporary writings, interdisciplinary analysis, and primary political documents. The juxtaposition of contrasting historical time frames and divergent opinions provides the reader with a more complex analysis than many other volumes of its kind. . . . The book does an excellent job of presenting insightful historical and contemporary perspectives on mainstream topics. . . . A useful text for generating debates in courses on U.S.-Latin American relations.
