The end of the Cold War removed hemispheric security from the top of the agenda of US-Latin American relations. Democracy, trade and investment, drugs and migration rose in importance. Pressures to eliminate the anachronistic US embargo on Cuba increased. The new agenda also includes Latin America's growing ties to the countries of the European Union and other regions. The book contains 15 essays by US, Latin American and European scholars on each of these issues, framed by overviews of the changing historical context from the 19th century to the end of the Cold War. Authors include John Coatsworth, Jorge Dominguez and Marcelo Suarez-Orozco.
