Talons of the Eagle offers a vivid portrayal of U.S.-Latin American relations from the early nineteenth century through the cold war to the present day. It casts new light on such contemporary issues as economic integration, environmental protection, drug trafficking, and undocumentedmigration. Rather than concentrating solely on U.S. policy, as many texts do, this book addresses the structural relationships between the two regions by focusing on international systems, the distribution of power, and the perception and pursuit of national interests.For the third edition, two new chapters have been added to the text. The first takes on the impact of 9/11 on the United States and Latin America, including a focus on George W. Bush's policy toward Latin America. The final chapter will analyze Latin American reactions and responses to the U.S.(and the rest of the world) from 9/11 to the present. The author will also include two stylistic innovations for this edition. The first is the incorporation of illustrations, and the integration of the tables (now an appendix) into the text. The second is the inclusion of anecdotal boxes orsidebars, which might include such items as the text of the Platt Amendment, FDR's Good Neighbor Speech, U.S. and Latin American press coverage of the Bay of Pigs invasion, Latin American reactions to 9/11 and at least one speech by George W. Bush.

"A confused, overcrowded novel of a young, ex-G.I. teacher and his wife, who find themselves in a small mid-western town "on the edge of former slave territory". Andrew Cameron's search for background material for his thesis on the life of a local abolitionist who had been lynched before the Civil War leads him first to a local tavern-keeper, long interested in the martyred Mountwood, and then to an abortive attempt to elect a Negro to the School Board. The story wends it way through many issues, teen-age sex, unions, homosexuality, communism, the after-effects of the war, the Negroes themselves. Over them all like a giant vise is the necessity of retaining their respective jobs for their families' sake as well as their own, and to top it all off there is the age-old dilemma of the intellectual- the inability to act when action is the only way out."--Kirkus.

This book is about not just the effects but the making of U.S. foreign policy. It shows how advocates of basing U.S. relations on progress toward democracy struggle in Washington with advocates of support for repressive regimes in return for economic benefits such trade, investment, and mineral resources and military benefits such as access to their territory for U.S. armed and covert forces. By arguing that the outcome of this struggle is determined by the average citizen's position, the book makes readers participants rather than observers. By arguing that a "cultural pump" constantly promotes a vision of American domination as a positive force in the world, it encourages readers to analyze the day-to-day effect of this vision on their own perceptions. Intended for a general audience, the book features enough inside tales and colorful characters to intrigue the casual reader, but also provides the clear themes and historical context needed for a high school or college text on U.S. policy after World War II toward the colonized, and then post-colonial countries.

"The best nature writer working in Britain today." - The Los Angeles Times. Eagles, more than any other bird, spark our imaginations. These magnificent creatures encapsulate the majesty and wildness of Scottish nature. But change is afoot for the eagles of Scotland: the golden eagles are now sharing the skies with sea eagles after a successful reintroduction programme. In 'The Eagle's Way', Jim Crumley exploits his years of observing these spectacular birds to paint an intimate portrait of their lives and how they interact with each other and the Scottish landscape. Combining passion, beautifully descriptive prose and the writer's 25 years of experience, 'The Eagle's Way' explores the ultimate question - what now for the eagles? - making it essential reading for wildlife lovers and eco-enthusiasts.

This book is the engrossing and little-known story of a powerful circle of men- the wing of the Federalist party led by Alexander Hamilton- who won a bitter fight for a national army, but divided the country and destroyed their own party in the process. Here is history that raises questions about the power and influence of militarism in American politics: Did Alexander Hamilton intentionally provoke the Whiskey Rebellion to prove the need for a federal army? Were the Federalists prepared to use military force to prevent Thomas Jefferson from becoming President in 1800? Were these men militarists? Were they after a national army in order to maintain their own power? Unfolding the critical events of America's first two decades of Independence- the incredible Newburgh Conspiracy of 1783, the first Constitutional debates over "national security," Shay's Rebellion, the Indian War campaigns of "Mad Anthony" Wayne, the Quasi-War with the French- this timely book chronicles the origins of American militarism, and the serious threat it posed to the democratic ideals of the young American nation. -- from Book Jacket.
