That infernal little Cuban republic : the United States and the Cuban Revolution by Lars Schoultz( )

15 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cuba has regularly given Washington a headache, Lars Schoultz observes in his comprehensive chronicle of U.S. policy toward the Cuban Revolution. Seeking relief, even the most patient U.S. officials have often been tempted to repeat what an exasperated President Theodore Roosevelt told a friend in 1906: "I am so angry with that infernal little Cuban republic that I would like to wipe its people off the face of the earth." Certainly that has been true since 1959, when a group of rebels led by Fidel Castro ousted Fulgencio Batista, a dictator known for his friendly ties to the United States, and proceeded to cause more trouble than anyone could have imagined. Using a rich array of documents and firsthand interviews with U.S. and Cuban officials, Schoultz tells the story of the attempts and failures of ten U.S. administrations to end the Cuban Revolution. He covers everything from the legendary 1960s plot to assassinate Castro using a rigged ballpoint pen to the message that recently ran across the electronic billboard of the U.S. interests section in Havana: "Communism doesnt work because people like to own stuff"--A comment attributed to the late rocker Frank Zappa. Schoultz argues that despite the overwhelming advantage in size and power that the United States enjoys over its neighbor, the Cubans' historical insistence on their right to self-determination has inevitably irritated American administrations, influenced both U.S. domestic politics and foreign policy, and led to a freeze in diplomatic relations of unprecedented longevity. Schoultz's analysis illuminates what has been a highly unproductive foreign policy and points to fresh prospects as a new century of U.S.-Cuban relations begins
Human rights and United States policy toward Latin America by Lars Schoultz( Book )

21 editions published between 1981 and 2016 in English and held by 1,982 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The role of human rights in United States policy toward Latin America is the subject of this study. It covers the early sixties to 1980, a period when humanitarian values came to play an important role in determining United States foreign policy. The author is concerned both with explaining why these values came to impinge on government decision making and how internal bureaucratic processes affected the specific content of United States policy. Originally published in 1981. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available pr
Beneath the United States : a history of U.S. policy toward Latin America by Lars Schoultz( Book )

21 editions published between 1997 and 2003 in English and Portuguese and held by 1,058 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Excellent and well-written history of US foreign policy toward Latin America emphasizes often depreciative view that Washington statesmen had of their neighbors to the south. Based on extensive research of correspondence, speeches, and other foreign policy-related statements. Useful for specialists, undergraduates, and anyone interested in US/Latin American relations"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58
National security and United States policy toward Latin America by Lars Schoultz( Book )

16 editions published between 1987 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 936 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lars Schoultz proposes a way for all those interested in U.S. foreign policy fully to appreciate the terms of the present debate. To understand U.S. policy in Latin America, he contends, one must critically examine the deeply held beliefs of U.S. policy makers about what Latin America means to U.S. national security. Originally published in 1987. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905

In their own best interest : a history of the U.S. effort to improve Latin Americans by Lars Schoultz( Book )

8 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, Lars Schoultz explores the culture of "improvement" that defines the attitudes and values shaping all United States policies towards Latin America in the past and present. Schoultz's aim is to find the sources of this political and intellectual culture which has informed our relations with our southern neighbors and which continues to do so despite its faulty premises and its failure to effect change and transformation. Schoultz focuses on two period in the past as critical to embedding the culture and policies of improvement: the Progressive Era, which established the belief in "uplifting" others for their betterment, and the Cold War Era, which established the institutions for sustaining and implementing the process of uplifting a people and state. In Their Own Best Interest: A History of the U.S. Effort to Improve Latin Americans is a powerful historical indictment of a "constellation of beliefs" that has been a central part of Washington's foreign policy establishment and culture. The notion that the United States knows better than its allies and neighbors what is best for each of them resonates beyond Latin America and underlies much of the United States' foreign policies around the world.--
