South America Looks at the United States

Excerpt

The following pages are the outcome of a year's residence and travel in South America, in 1925-1926, under the auspices of the Bureau of International Research of Harvard University and Radcliffe College. They represent a sincere and, I trust, unbiassed effort to arrive at an understanding of some of the more general factors that govern the relations between the people of the United States and the nations of the southern continent. The writer harbors no illusions about the pitfalls that beset an investigator of these matters, and realizes that a year's residence is altogether too short a time to enable one to arrive at wholly satisfactory conclusions. Yet even these brief observations may not be without value, if only because they are associated with a special interest, of much longer standing, in South American history and politics.

A rapid review of the ground covered in this volume appeared as an article in Foreign Affairs, April, 1927, and some of the materials were used in a short address given at the Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Philadelphia, in the same month and year.
