Wilsonianism and Latin America

President Woodrow Wilson. This complex and contradictory chief executive offered some of the most idealistic (Pan-American Pact, Mobile speech) and some of the most militaristic (Haitian and Dominican occupations) initiatives in the history of inter-American relations.
As we gear up for the midterm, today's class will explore inter-American relations beyond the Mexican Revolution during Wilson's presidency.  We'll be trying to piece together the President's agenda, as well as to understand the rationale behind his frequent use of force in the region.


                Katz, Secret War in Mexico, finish up selection.
