Read Latin America’s Cold War by Hal Brands

Latin America’s Cold War by Hal Brands is the first historical text to take an international perspective on the postwar decades in the Latin American region. Hal Brands sets out to explain what exactly happened in Latin America during the Cold War, and why it was so traumatic. Ultimately, Brands exposes Latin America’s Cold War as not a single conflict, but rather a series of overlapping political, social, geostrategic, and ideological struggles whose repercussions can be felt to this day.

Read Hal Brands’ Latin America’s Cold War  and check out the award-winning documentary Black and Cuba. Present day Cuba discussed in the documentary can not be fully understood without the context and history that Brands’ historical text provides.
