Britta and Russell Crandall are professors of international politics and American foreign policy at Davidson College and have been teaching US–Latin American relations to undergraduates and graduate students over the past two decades.
“Ideal for undergraduate courses, “Our Hemisphere”? is a balanced
and nuanced portrayal of the history of U.S.–Latin American
relations. The attention given to more recent episodes on
immigration, the drug war and U.S. policy toward Cuba and
Venezuela is especially welcome.”—Allen Wells, author of
Tropical Zion: General Trujillo, FDR and the Jews of Sosúa
“Britta and Russell Crandall’s deeply researched and engaging book illuminates the complexities in US–Latin American relations that are too often overlooked. ‘Our Hemisphere’? is a magisterial and insightful account that should provoke rethinking of inter-American relations.”—Michael Shifter, president, Inter-American Dialogue
