Chapter Summary

This chapter briefly outlines the historical background to the US intervention in the Dominican Republic. Following on from this historical overview, it examines the historical record of the influence of international law on American foreign policy-making and implementation as well as the responses of Latin American States to US legal rhetoric used in diplomacy during the crisis. After comparing the adequacy of existing literature on the Dominican Republic and its theoretical underpinnings with the historical record, the chapter finally examines the historical record from an International Law as Ideology (ILI) perspective in order to assess the relative explanatory capacity of an ILI perspective in understanding the place of international law in American and Latin American foreign policy during the Dominican Republic crisis.

Keywords:American foreign policy-making; Dominican Republic crisis; International Law as Ideology (ILI) perspective; Latin American States
