BeschreibungIn this wide-ranging book, historian Lester D. Langley offers a fresh interpretation of the history of the modern Western hemisphere since the mid-nineteenth century. He evaluates the dynamics of hemispheric history, commencing with the articulation of the "two Americas" (Theodore Roosevelt's America and the contrasting America described by Cuban revolutionary, essayist, and poet Jose Marti) and culminating with recent controversial efforts to forge a united hemisphere. Comprehensive and balanced, this history of the nations of the Americas offers new insights into both the past and the future of inter-American relations.
PortraitLester D. Langley is professor emeritus of the department of history, University of Georgia. His earlier book, The Americas in the Age of Revolution: 1750--1850, is also available in paperback from Yale University Press.
