Hispanic American Relations with the United States

By William Spence Robertson; David Kinley | Go to book overview

EDITOR'S PREFACE

Among the things desired by all patriotic Americans, north or south, are a better acquaintance with one another and more intimate relations. Our people need to be better acquainted with our neighbors in Central and South America and they with us. This is desirable not only for reasons of mutual economic benefit, but in the interest of international peace, in the interest of the influence of the American continent on world affairs, and in the interest of securing that advantage which comes from the reaction of the culture of one people on another. Most that has been written and said about developing our relations with South America has referred to trade matters, but there is much more than trade to be benefited by better mutual knowledge and closer relations. It is astonishing how few of our people are aware that in the countries to the south of us are great literatures, long established civilizations, cultures of great peoples, which in some respects may fairly be said to be superior to our own. A wider knowledge of the literature and the social life of our South American friends would react favorably on us. A better knowledge on their part of our character and mode of life would be good for them.

For these reasons this volume by Professor Robertson on Hispanic-American Relations with the United States is a valuable and welcome contribution from the press of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace to the literature of the subject. Professor Robertson's standing as a historian insures a scholarly treatment of his topic, and his life-long interest in Hispanic-American matters insures a full knowledge of the subject. His treatment is at once ample and interesting, and the volume will appeal to the ordinary reader as well as to the scholar.
