About this book

This volume focuses on the contemporary political, economic and security affairs of the Western Hemisphere. Following a decade of focus on economic matters around the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA), the authors argue that the Bush Doctrine formed in the wake of 9/11 has resulted in a renewed U.S. concentration on security matters.

Reviews

"[The twelve chapters] go well beyond the issue, draw visions about the protection and future repartition of natural resources and they offer idealistic strategies for a new hemispheric policy . . .Those who are looking for alterantive perspectives and recommendations of resistance against U.S. American economic and political strategies as well as the consequences of globalization will find the volume helpful and inspiring." - Iberoamericana

"A unique, valuable contribution to the literature on U.S. foreign policy toward Latin America and inter-American relations." - Pedro Monreal, Senior Research Associate, Universidade Federal da Bahia, Brazil

"This important book deals with various aspects of the Bush administration's unhappy efforts to deal with myriad problems in Latin America. Examining the 'aggressive unilateralism' of the current administration's policy, the authors analyze Bush's stance of preventive war, unfounded military attacks, and the U.S.'s disregard of its traditional allies and international law in its attempts of 'military and political dominance over the world.' No wonder that U.S. policies are increasingly rejected in Latin America and that the image of the U.S., under Bush, has reached an all-time low." - Wayne S. Smith, Senior Fellow, Center for International Policy, Washington, D.C."The volume belongs in all college and university libraries with significant holdings in Latin American affairs... Recommended." - CHOICE
