Thirteen leading scholars tackle key aspects of U.S.-Latin American relations over the past decade in this updated edition of one of the classics of the field. While there is little here that is original, overall the volume is valuable for its comprehensiveness and balance. There are particularly good contributions by Christopher Mitchell on hemispheric immigration and human rights policy, Joseph Tulchin on the United States and Latin America in a global context, and the editor on the role of U.S. policy in promoting democracy.
