"Of exceptional importance, In from the Cold is, at last, a volume general readers and classes have needed to fill a wide, embarrassing, and revealing gap in the current literature. It is an authoritative, cross-cultural, and provocatively interpretive work (led by Gilbert M. Joseph's superb introductory overview of both the global Cold War and post-1945 U.S.-Latin American relations), and notably important in regard to Washington's success in helping to kill Latin American democratic and independent cultural movements even as U.S. officials were demanding the spread of democracy elsewhere."--Walter LaFeber, Andrew and James Tisch University Professor, Cornell University "This outstanding collection explains why Latin America was central to the Cold War and why the Cold War was central for Latin America. By providing easy access to some of the best research currently being undertaken on Cold War history, the editors have done a great favor to those who are looking for critical and innovative explorations of the recent past."--O. A. Westad, London School of Economics, author of The Global Cold WarFrom the Publisher:
Over the last decade, studies of the Cold War have mushroomed globally. Unfortunately, work on Latin America has not been well represented in either theoretical or empirical discussions of the broader conflict. With some notable exceptions, studies have proceeded in rather conventional channels, focusing on U.S. policy objectives and high-profile leaders (Fidel Castro) and events (the Cuban Missile Crisis), drawing largely on U.S. government sources. Moreover, only rarely have U.S. foreign relations scholars engaged productively with Latin American historians who analyze how the international conflict transformed the region's political, social, and cultural life. Representing a collaboration among eleven North American, Latin American, and European historians, anthropologists, and political scientists, this volume attempts to facilitate such a cross-fertilization. In the process, "In From the Cold" shifts the focus of attention away from the bipolar conflict, the preoccupation of much of the so-called 'new Cold War history', in order to showcase research, discussion, and an array of new archival and oral sources centering on the grassroots, where conflicts actually brewed. The collection's contributors examine international and everyday contests over political power and cultural representation, focusing on communities and groups above and underground; on state houses and diplomatic board rooms manned by Latin American and international governing elites; on the relations among states regionally; and, less frequently, on the dynamics between the two great superpowers themselves. In addition to charting new directions for research on the Latin American Cold War, "In From the Cold" seeks to contribute more generally to an understanding of the conflict in the global south.
