Americas to the South

Excerpt

This book is designed for the average responsible United States citizen who tries to learn what he ought to know about South America--a very limited public. If it has any merit, the merit will lie in the fact that it is a simple, not a pretentious, book. Few North Americans pretend to know much about South America--even upon which coasts the several countries lie or what manner of governments they have. Most North Americans had neither expert knowledge of nor special interest in our southern neighbors until Hitler made both necessary. I hope I am aware of what the reader wants to know about these countries: what sort of people inhabit them; how they live, and what problems and aspirations animate them; whether their form of government is democratic or not; what--if anything--the Germans, Italians, and Japanese are doing there; and finally what all these things mean to the peace and happiness of the people of the United States. These are the things I wanted to know.
