Latin America in Caricature

by John J. Johnson

"Not many readers will thank the author as he deserves, for he has told us more about ourselves than we perhaps wish to know," predicted Latin America in Books of Latin America in Caricature-an exploration of more than one hundred years of hemispheric relations through political cartoons collected from leading U. S. periodicals from the 1860s through 1980. The cartoons are grouped according to recurring themes in diplomacy and complementing visual imagery. Each one is accompanied by a lengthy explanation of the incident portrayed, relating the drawing to public opinion of the day. Johnson's thoughtful introduction and the comments that precede the individual chapters provide essential background for understanding U. S. attitudes and policies toward Latin America.
