The Monroe Doctrine and the Growth of Western Hemisphere Solidarity

Excerpt

Is there any question about the Monroe Doctrine? Is the Monroe Doctrine a debatable topic? Probably not in the sense that so many topics are debatable. Certainly not in the sense that most of the propositions treated in dozens of volumes of this Reference Shelf Series are debatable. If, however, there be divergent opinions, what could they be and where might they be found?

Naturally, there would be the attitude of the United States of America on the question, and then the individual and composite attitudes of its citizens and of the nations of the Western Hemisphere profoundly affected by the Monroe Doctrine. Perhaps, even the man on the street knows the point of view of this government, but how could one best obtain the authentic views of the Latin American nations? The governing body of the Pan American Union gave me a clue in obtaining the answer to this last question. At this time I wish to express my appreciation to the following who have been most sympathetic in aiding me to present, as far as possible, at least two sides to the Monroe Doctrine question:

Argentina: Ambassador Felipe A. Espil First Secretary Carlos A. Pardo

Brazil: Ambassador Carlos Martins Pereira e Souza Chargé d'Affaires Arno Konder

Costa Rica: Minister Luis Fernández Rodríguez Secretary Annette Hord

Dominican Republic: Minister Andrés Pastoriza

Ecuador: Ambassador Colón Eloy Alfaro

Guatemala: Minister Adrián Recinos

Honduras: Minister Julián R. Cáceres

Mexico: Ambassador Francisco Castillo Nájera Chargé d'Affaires Luis Quintanilla

Nicaragua: Minister León DeBayle . . .
