United States and Latin America by Joseph Smith

Book Description

Providing a concise, balanced and incisive analysis of US diplomatic relations with Latin America from 1776 to the end of the twentieth century, this timely work explores central themes such as the structure of international relations, and the pursuit of American national interest by the use of diplomacy, cultural imperialism and economic and military power. Joseph Smith examines: * the rise of the USA as an independent power * its policy towards Latin-American movements for independence * the evolution of the Monroe Doctrine * pan-Americanism * dollar diplomacy * the challenge of communism. Highlighting Latin American responses to US policy over a significant time span, the study documents the development of a complex historical relationship in which the United States has claimed a pre-eminent role, arousing as much resentment as acquiescence from its southern neighbours. Including a timely discussion of the current issues of debt, trade and narcotics control, this unique and valuable study will be of interest to all those with an interest in US and Latin American international relations.

Lectures on Faith by Joseph Smith Lectures on Faith, Paperback (October 2016)

The Lectures on Faith were a series of seven theological lessons given before the "school of elders" held in Kirtland, Ohio, during the winter of 1834-35, and originally formed part of the scriptural canon of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons).

Finally My Ambulance by Joseph Smith Finally My Ambulance, Paperback (July 2014)

Presents an album of thirteen short stories. This title offers a flow of fiction, powerful stories that stand alone, but are interconnected in theme and tone; voices from the author of The Wolf and Taurus, voices in human form, still fierce in directness and purpose, laced with playful cruelty, originality, and the possibility of compassion.

Wolf & Taurus by Joseph Smith Wolf & Taurus, Paperback (June 2011)

In a bleak winter landscape a wolf is starved and weakening. He is the predator, but the harshness of nature, the death that stalks all of the wild forest, beings to challenge his supremacy, and his understanding of himself.
