When Ronald Reagan was elected in 1980, his administration vowed to meet the threat of Marxist revolution in Latin America on national security terms, supporting anti-communist regimes in the hemisphere regardless of their records on human rights. And yet, by Reagan's second term, the administration had adopted a regional strategy of promoting free elections and free markets - even when that meant abandoning Right-wing allies. In his book, Beyond Revolution and Repression: U.S. Foreign Policy and Latin America, 1980-1989, under contract with Cornell University Press, Evan D. McCormick explores this evolution in inter-American politics during the final decade of the Cold War.
