27 editions published between 1979 and 2001 in English and held by 1,875 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This examination of Chile's history covers the colonial period through to the present. It has a thematic style, which, by emphasizing continuities in such areas as urbanization and modernization, allows a coherent picture of Chile's historical development to emerge through the narrative
Times gone by : memoirs of a man of action by Vicente Pérez Rosales( )

14 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 1,755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In these memoirs the wildly adventurous Perez Rosales traces his life from his childhood in a well-to-do Santiago family toward the end of Chile's colonial period, up to the 1860s. During that approximate half-century he saw and did more than a dozen ordinary men. At age eleven in Argentina he watched the executions of Luis and Juan Jose Carrera. From there, his adventures took him on several journeys on sailing vessels around Cape Horn; to Paris, where he witnessed the July revolution of 1830, and on to various commercial ventures including liquor manufacturing, the practice of medicine, and cattle smuggling." "Returning to South America, he served as an advisor to an Argentine warlord, then worked mining precious metals in the north of Chile. He participated in the California Gold Rush in 1849, served as director of the government's project for German immigration and settlement in Chile's wild south, and served as Chilean consul and immigration agent in Hamburg. After writing his memoirs Perez Rosales continued his government service, eventually rising to membership in the Chilean senate."--Jacket
No higher law : American foreign policy and the Western Hemisphere since 1776 by Brian Loveman( )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 1,601 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dismantling the myths of United States isolationism and exceptionalism, "No Higher Law" is a sweeping history and analysis of American policy toward the Western Hemisphere and Latin America from independence to the present. From the nation's earliest days, argues Brian Loveman, U.S. leaders viewed and treated Latin America as a crucible in which to test foreign policy and from which to expand American global influence. Loveman demonstrates how the main doctrines and policies adopted for the Western Hemisphere were exported, with modifications, to other world regions as the United States pursued its self-defined global mission. "No Higher Law" reveals the interplay of domestic politics and international circumstances that shaped key American foreign policies from U.S. independence to the first decade of the twenty-first century. This revisionist view considers the impact of slavery, racism, ethnic cleansing against Native Americans, debates on immigration, trade and tariffs, the historical growth of the military-industrial complex, and political corruption as critical dimensions of American politics and foreign policy. Concluding with an epilogue on the Obama administration, Loveman weaves together the complex history of U.S. domestic politics and foreign policy to achieve a broader historical understanding of American expansionism, militarism, imperialism, and global ambitions as well as novel insights into the challenges facing American policymakers at the beginning of the twenty-first century.--Book jacket
For la Patria : politics and the armed forces in Latin America by Brian Loveman( )

13 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and held by 1,489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A narrative history of the military's political role in Latin America in national defence and security. The author contends that the military institutions in each Latin American nation have resulted from that country's own blend of local and imported influences
The Politics of antipolitics : the military in Latin America by Brian Loveman( Book )

38 editions published between 1978 and 1998 in English and held by 1,317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Guerrilla warfare by Che Guevara( Book )

29 editions published between 1985 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 877 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This indispensable book includes three of Che Guevara's most influential essays describing his tactical philosophy of fighting a guerrilla war in Latin America. Guerrilla Warfare, written in 1960, outlines Guevara's doctrine for guerrilla fighters, especially against Caribbean-style dictatorships. In Guerrilla Warfare: A Method (1963) and Message to the Tricontinental (1967), Guevara modified some of his earlier tenets. These latter two works move away from his earlier dogmatism, suggesting that Marxist revolution was possible even in purportedly democratic regimes. All three essays reflect his deeply held belief that a small, rural-based guerrilla army could trigger a revolution.--Publisher description
Struggle in the countryside; politics and rural labor in Chile, 1919-1973 by Brian Loveman( Book )

14 editions published between 1975 and 1976 in English and held by 491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The constitution of tyranny : regimes of exception in Spanish America by Brian Loveman( Book )

10 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Loveman concludes by predicting that the regime transitions that periodically sweep Spanish America will continue unless there is drastic change in the constitutional foundations of Latin American politics. His subject is so timely that no student of Latin American history and politics can afford to miss this important book. It will permanently change how we think about the other nations of the Western Hemisphere
Addicted to failure : U.S. security policy in Latin America and the Andean Region( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This perceptive book critically explores why the United States continues to pursue failed policies in Latin America. Leading scholars explain how policies intended to promote the rule of law instead generate corruption and institutional crisis, why policies seeking to promote democratization and stabilization instead generate populist authoritarianism and destabilization, and why the war on drugs and the war on terror have neither reduced narcotics trafficking nor increased citizen security in the region. Reviewing official policy and its defenders and critics alike, this indispensable book fo
