Editorial Reviews

Review

[This book] should help shape the ongoing, often intense, debate over Kennedy and the pivotal U.S. policies in the 1960s.Walter LaFeber, Cornell University

Review

This is the best detailed, overall account we have of the much-discussed Kennedy policies toward Latin America. Well-written, based on exhaustive use of U.S. sources, this account makes an argument--Kennedy's obsession with the Cold War 'mutilated' his good intentions toward the southern hemisphere--that should help shape the ongoing, often intense, debate over Kennedy and the pivotal U.S. policies in the 1960s.--Walter LaFeber, Cornell University

Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent, concise account of Kennedy's policies toward Latin America. Rabe does an exceptional job in presenting the information in a fairhanded manner. The writing is superb and the book is an easy read. It is a must have for those interested in Kennedy, Latin America, or just history in general.

Excellent review of US foreign policy in Latin America and Kennedy administration state of mind in a conflict between the fight of communism and development of the continent.
