Partners in Conflict: The United States and Latin America

By Abraham F. Lowenthal
Johns Hopkins, 1987
235 pp. $19.95

A thoughtful, wide-ranging analysis of U.S. policy in Latin America and the Caribbean, with recommendations to match. One theme is pervasive: U.S. dominance has declined because of underlying economic, social, technological and military trends that have wrought fundamental changes in the distribution of power in the hemisphere; the old preponderance cannot be restored; and the U.S. therefore should move from dominance to cooperation. Two of the six chapters are devoted to relations with Mexico and Brazil, and a third concerns the Caribbean Basin. An important book.
