Schooled in America: Imperialism and the far right in Latin America

Latin America

Introduced by Ben Fowler.

For almost 200 years Latin America has been the imperial backyard of the United States, and right-wing forces in the region have had a long association with US imperialism. Now the last five years have seen the rise of a series of right-wing pro-American governments throughout Latin America.
