This book is the winner of the Choice Magazine Outstanding Academic Title and the A. B. Thomas Book Award Sponsored by the Southeastern Council on Latin American Studies. In 1958, angry Venezuelans attacked Vice President Richard Nixon in Caracas, opening a turbulent decade in Latin American - U.S. relations. In Yankee No! Alan McPherson sheds much-needed light on the controversial and pressing problem of anti-U.S. sentiment in the world by examining the roots of anti-Americanism in one of its most fertile breeding grounds, Latin America.
Alan McPherson is Associate Professor of History at Howard University.
