   schema:reviewBody ""This book provides over 260 entries on U.S. presidents, Latin American politicians, covert operations, policies and major events since the early 1800s that define the relations between the U.S. and the Latin American and Caribbean region." "From the Monroe Doctrine at NAFTA, the tone of U.S.-Latin America relations is usually set by the United States, and largely to its benefit. David W. Dent compiles more than 260 A-Z entries detailing the key people, events, treaties, wars, and concepts that have gone into the making of the often contentious relations between the U.S. and the Latin American and Caribbean region. Entries conclude with suggested readings and are thoroughly cross-referenced. A thematic index guides users to related entries, and an extensive bibliography includes a list of key works central to the study of U.S. - Latin American relations. There is also a separate list of relevant online resources. The entire work is also thoroughly indexed." "Useful for students and researchers of international politics within the Western hemisphere, Dent's historical dictionary covers items ranging from pro-slavery filibusterers adventuring in Central America, dollar diplomacy, Anti-Americanism, banana wars, the Reagan Doctrine, Sandinistas, "friendly" dictators, and Che Guevara, to the impact of the events of September 11, 2001, on Latin America, among many other items."--Jacket." ;
