This study examines United States-Latin American relations. It argues that US policy toward Latin America was driven by fear of economic nationalism. Economic nationalists in Latin America in the 1950s wanted to control foreign trade and investment in their nations, to diversify their economies and, in some cases, promote industrialization. The study examines how US officals used economic aid policy in Guatemala and Bolivia to eliminate economic nationalism in those nations. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
