Coming soon: Latin America Confronts the United States

Latin America Confronts the United States

A new book on U.S.-Latin American relations, coming in November 2015 from Cambridge University Press.

Hello! I am Tom Long, visiting professor in International Relations at the Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económicas in Mexico City. I am the author of Latin America Confronts the United States: Asymmetry and Influence (Cambridge University Press, November 2015). The book is now available for pre-order in hardcover through Cambridge and Amazon.

My research examines U.S.-Latin American relations, U.S. and Latin American foreign policies, and the dynamics of asymmetrical relationships in world politics. I am particularly interested in Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, Mexico, and Panama. My work has also appeared or is forthcoming in International Security, Diplomatic History, Latin American Research Review, and Foro Internacional. I have also written for the Woodrow Wilson Center’s Mexico Institute,, and El Universal (Mexico).
