Texte du rabat

At the start of the 1960s, revolution in the "Third World" challenged the established order, as discontent with the status quo fueled attempts to revoke colonialism and the strangleholds on power maintained by entrenched local oligarchies. This book examines the causes of revolution in Latin America in the sixties and the various responses crafted to stop it, in particular, the Alliance for Progress, a program which represented the best products of American developmental and counterinsurgency theory. Equally important, however, is an examination of the independent policies implemented by Latin American elites, policies often in direct opposition to those pursued by the U.S.

Résumé
This work focuses on the nature of revolution as it affected Latin America in the 1960s, and the efforts designed to counteract or co-opt this challenge through the Alliance for Progress. It also examines the independent policies implemented by Latin Americans themselves.
