Chapter Summary

This chapter explores the mutual perceptions of North Americans and Latin Americans and how these perceptions have shaped the relationship between them. The question to answer is what were the underlying assumptions that influenced the different perceptions of one side by the other. The answer has two parts, first, what some prominent North American politicians and political analysts say about how North Americans perceived Latin America, and, second, what Latin America thought. Even though the "countries of Latin America (Brazil excepted) share with the United States the experience of being the oldest continuous republics of the contemporary world," the bicentennial relationship between the United States and Latin America has been characterized by "resentment, mistrust, disrespect, and hostility." of the United States.

Keywords: disrespect; hostility; Latin America; mistrust; mutual perceptions; North American; resentment; United States
