The United States and Latin America after the Cold War looks at the almost quarter-century of relations between the United States and Latin America since the Berlin Wall fell in 1989. An academic and recent high-level U.S. policymaker, Crandall argues that any lasting analysis must be viewed through a fresh framework that allows for the often unexpected episodes and outcomes in U.S.-Latin American relations. Crandall's book examines the policies of three post-Cold War presidential administrations (Bush Sr., Clinton, and Bush Jr.) through the prism of three critical areas: democracy, economics, and security. Crandall then introduces several case studies of U.S. policy in Latin America, such as Cuba, Brazil, interventions in Haiti, Colombia, Hugo Chavez's Venezuela, Mexico, and Argentina's financial meltdown.
