At a time when the power of the United States of America has reached its peak, what has been happening in the US s back yard? Can Central and South America indeed still be regarded as such? What is the meaning of Hugo Chavez s pan-Latin AmericanMoreAt a time when the power of the United States of America has reached its peak, what has been happening in the US s back yard? Can Central and South America indeed still be regarded as such? What is the meaning of Hugo Chavez s pan-Latin American revolution? How does Venezuela intend to form alliances with the other power-centres on the continent (especially Brazil) and elsewhere in the world (Russia) How should we understand the US attitude towards Mexico when, having welcomed Mexico into NAFTA, the Americans have now built a new Berlin wall for hundreds of miles along their border with their Southern neighbour? What is China s role in South America? How does the fight over hydrocarbons - so definitive an issue elsewhere in the world - affect the geopolitics of the American continent, North and South? This volume brings together a wide mix of politicians, commentators, experts and lawyers from North and South America who shed fascinating light on the answers to these questions, and many more.
