Gary Tiedemann knows how to bring out the best in a strong narrative and, more importantly, how not to tamper with one. His delivery is brisk, highly focused, and steady throughout. The author's discussion traces the course of the U.S.'s growing domination of the Western Hemisphere through the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries--backed by the Monroe Doctrine and prompted by Latin America's unending regime changes and Europe's expansionism. Whether acting as the Big Stick or the Good Neighbor, America has sometimes been benevolent and protective but, just as often, exploitive and opportunistic. The narrative is rich in details, anecdotes, and character delineation. It's highly accessible and highly relevant to much of our foreign relations today.
