Italian text

This volume, divided into five chronological chapters presented in backward order compared to the most traditional procedure, studies the relationship between the United States and Latin America during the years of Carter’s administration, from 1977 to early 1981. Based on unpublished documents kept at the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library in Atlanta, Georgia, and on the critical review of the international bibliography available on the matter, the book shows a brief reconstruction of the subject and a succession of interpretative hypothesis.A wider valuation of Carter’s presidency is connected to these assumptions, in opposition to many considerations on the American foreign policy during the second half of 70’s. It is presented not as a period of weakness but of bold decisions in the international field, mostly linked to a solid awareness of the ethic and value instrument as the keystone of an appropriate review of Roosevelt’s grand imperial design
Attached to the book is a documentary appendix, that encourages the use of the monograph as a teaching tool for the first and second level degree courses dedicated to the United States international action, to the history of Latin America or, more generally, to the history of the international system in the XX century.
