Power and Resistance
US Imperialism in Latin America
Two of the left’s most important academics analyze the politics and economics of US imperialism’s relationship with Latin America.
This book concerns the form taken today by US imperialism in Latin-America, analyzing the projection of US state power as a means of both advancing the economic interests of US capital in the region and maintaining its hegemony over the world capitalist system. The authors survey the motives driving these policies, and the resistance they have generated across the region.
