Small countries, large issues : studies in U.S.-Latin American asymmetries by Mark Falcoff( Book )

8 editions published in 1984 in English and Undetermined and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Great discrepancies of power are called asymmetries, a concept that many Latin American nations find most useful for describing their relations with the United States. The author differs with many social scientists who assume that the United States can always calibrate its power to achieve a desired outcome. He focuses on the way asymmetries operate in the relations of the United States with Cuba, Uruguay, El Salvador, Nicaragua, and Chile. This book is an exercise partly in historiography, partly in political science, and partly in the larger study of international relations. It explores those "gray areas" where national power is often a matter more of perceptions than of actuality, and it examines how perceptions themselves become an independent variable in the relations between nations
Cuba the morning after : confronting Castro's legacy by Mark Falcoff( Book )

A culture of its own : taking Latin America seriously by Mark Falcoff( Book )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Culture of Its Own: Taking Latin America Seriously presents Mark Falcoff's essays on the region. Many of them are contentious; none of them are dull. He ranges from bilingualism to the cult of Garcia Lorea, from U.S. Cuban relations to Chile's curious love affair with Germany. On more than one occasion, Falcoff takes aim at American journalism and scholarship, both of which, he argues, have all too often produced a fantasy version of Latin America which reflects our own national narcissism rather than genuine curiosity about the other. His volume will interest Latin American specialists, diplomats, and journalists as well as those general readers who think they are not interested in Latin America - or who only suspect they might be, but don't know quite where to start."--Jacket
