Summary
"In 1958, angry Venezuelans attacked Vice President Richard Nixon in Caracas, opening a turbulent decade in Latin American-U.S. relations. In Yankee No! Alan McPherson sheds much-needed light on the controversial and pressing problem of anti-U.S. sentiment in the world." "McPherson examines the roots of anti-Americanism in one of its most fertile breeding grounds, Latin America. After surveying anti-U.S. movements since the hemisphere's independence from Europe, he focuses on the crucial years that witnessed the Cuban Revolution, the 1964 Panama riots, and U.S. intervention in the Dominican Republic."--BOOK JACKET.
