This book concerns the form taken today by US imperialism in Latin America, with reference to the projection of US state power as a means of both advancing the economic interests of the US capitalist class in the region and maintaining its hegemony over the world capitalist system. In Part I the book delves into the complex relationship that exists between imperialism and capitalism as the system that dominates the world economy. Part II elaborates on the economic and political dynamics of imperial power in Latin America and the forces of resistance that these dynamics have generated. Part III focuses on the relationship between the United States and Venezuela, which has assumed the leadership in the anti-imperialist struggle.

About the Author:

James Petras is Professor Emeritus in Sociology at Binghamton University. He is author of more than 60 books on the global and regional dynamics of US imperialism and capitalism, and the class struggle associated with these dynamics. Henry Veltmeyer is Research Professor in Development Studies at the Universidad Autonoma de Zacatecas in Mexico. He has authored and edited more than 40 books on political economy, social movements, development theory and dynamics of social change in Latin America.

Review:

"This is a very important book. Without economic reductionism Petras and Veltmeyer expose the astonishing level of greed, exploitation and inequality, associated with the world capitalist system. They also provide a sharp and much-needed class analysis of the contradictions of both capitalism and imperialism, and the propensity towards crisis that has assumed global proportions and undermined the foundations of the system as well as generating powerful forces of resistance and class warfare." John Saxe-Fernandez, author of Economic Imperialism in Mexico: The Operations of the World Bank in our Country
