Course Description for Inter-American Relations

LAH5715: Inter-American Relations
United States policy toward Latin America over the past 190 years has gone through a number of distinct phases and has shifted from neglect to intervention, from cooperation to conflict. Our purpose in this course is to determine how we got from the past to the present; to determine the framework of United States policies toward the region; to provide an understanding of the perceptions that U.S. policymakers have had toward Latin America; and to see the ways that the Latin Americans have responded to U.S. policy initiatives.
