An imbalance of power and a sense of unresolved tension have long plagued relations between the United States and Latin America. This book offers an important new synthesis of that complex relationship by studying how actions and policies of the United States have been interpreted and played out in Latin America. Beginning with the Monroe Doctrine in 1823, the United States unilaterally asserted its right to protect the hemisphere against foreign intervention. But what began as a policy boldly proclaiming hemispheric security soon led to direct intervention by the United States in political, economic, and military matters throughout Latin America. Meddling by the United States resulted in deep-seated antagonisms that have adversely impacted U.S.-Latin American relations for over 150 years. Don Coerver and Linda Hall draw on their expertise in modern Latin American history to present U.S. policies in light of their impact on these countries. They help readers understand the issues that have defined and divided nations of the Western Hemisphere from the 1820s to the present. Events since 1940 are the focus of more than half the book, including the Cuban Revolution and missile crisis; negotiations in the 1970s over turnover of the Panama Canal; wars in Central America in the 1980s; and in the 1990s, the impact of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) on relations with Mexico and the effects of the so-called war on drugs throughout the Americas.

"If God really loved me, why did this happen?" Have you ever felt that way? Henk certainly did after his father was a victim of the Holocaust and his mother and sister were killed in a bombing raid later described as a mistake. Clenching his fist toward the sky, he cursed God. Jan, raised in Indonesia by a Chinese couple who worshipped Buddha and practiced witchcraft, met Henk after he left Holland as a member of the Royal Dutch Army and was wounded during a revolution. Their marriage was improbable, their life together truly a clash of two cultures-tangled destinies! But when something appears hopeless, miracles can happen! Johanna Garrison shares the captivating story of her parents: the wonders and woes of their marriage, an unlikely path to Christ, and a journey that brings them to America. But just when everything seems wonderful, tragedy strikes again. Their hope-filled story will inspire you to conquer adversity, walk in forgiveness, and become a victor instead of a victim. "I urge you to keep some tissue with you as you read this book. There are moments when you will cry over the adversity described, and then later you will cry with joy over what the Lord did. You will read of trial and tragedy, but you will also experience miracles of God's grace and power. Tangled Destinies is not fiction-it's the real story of how God is always for us, even when life turns against us!" -Dr. George O. Wood. General Superintendent, Assemblies of God. Johanna Garrison has served as a teacher, administrator, conference speaker, and mentor. She is a graduate of Evangel University. In addition, she has partnered with her husband, Alton, in multiple ministry positions including evangelist and pastor as well as serving with him in his offices as Executive Director of U.S. Missions and Assistant General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God.
