About this product
- DescriptionTranslated by Chris Brandt Now available in paperback, Clara Nieto's history of US policy toward Latin America is enriched by her extensive first-hand experience: As a member of the Colombian diplomatic corps, she was present at UN and OAS meetings where US-Cuba conflicts were addressed, and where negotiations between the US and Latin America were hammered into place. She demonstrates convincingly that US policy toward Latin America has been a politics of intervention set into motion by the triumph of the Cuban revolution.
