An accessible course book on U.S.-Latin American relations

“Our Hemisphere”? uncovers the range, depth, and veracity of the United States’ relationship with the Americas. Using short historical vignettes, Britta and Russell Crandall chart the course of inter-American relations from 1776 to the present, highlighting the roles that groups of soldiers, intellectuals, private citizens, and politicians have had in shaping U.S. policy toward Latin America. In doing so, they reveal over two centuries of regional interactions where Latin Americans have exercised their own power with their northern neighbor.

Britta and Russell Crandall are professors of international politics and American foreign policy at Davidson College and have been teaching U.S-Latin American relations to undergraduates and graduate students over the past two decades.
