The United States and the Americas

The United States and the Americas series is dedicated to a broader understanding of the political, economic, and especially cultural forces and issues that have shaped the Western hemispheric experience, its governments and its peoples. Individual volumes assess relations between the United States and its neighbors to the south and north: Mexico, Central America, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Panama, Colombia, Venezuela, Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, Brazil, Paraguay, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, and Canada.

New volumes will consider topics and issues in the history of the Americas from the mid-eighteenth century assessed from a hemispheric, regional and transnational perspective: revolution and independence, nation-building and nationalism, imperialism, civil wars; Pan Americanism and the inter-American system; literary, educational and cultural exchanges; migration, sports, human rights and social policy.

Lester D. Langley is a professor emeritus of history at the University of Georgia. His many books on Latin America and the Caribbean include America and the Americas: The United States in the Western Hemisphere, The Banana Wars: United States Intervention in the Caribbean, 1898–1934, and The Americas in the Modern Age.
