Review Of "Paraguay And The United States: Distant Allies" By Mora, F. O. & Cooney, J, Robert Andrew Nickson

Robert Andrew Nickson

This book provides an overview of relations between Paraguay and the United States from Independence to 2003. The authors tracing of the switches in US foreign policy towards Paraguay from one presidential administration to another provides a mine of interesting information. However, they fail to address the underlying continuity of US support for right-wing governments in Paraguay during the post-1945 period and the obstacle that this has posed for democratisation.
