The first part of the book is an inquiry into the larger historical context in which the development of an unequal power relationship between the United States and Latin American and Caribbean nations evolved after the proliferation of the Monroe Doctrine. The region came to be seen as a contested terrain in the East-West conflict of the Cold War, and a new US-inspired ideology, the ''National Security Doctrine'', was used to justify military operations and the hunting down of individuals and groups labelled as ''communists''. Following on from this historical context, the book then provides an analysis of the mechanisms of state and genocidal violence is offered, demonstrating how in order to get to know the internal enemy, national armies relied on US intelligence training and economic aid to carry out their surveillance campaigns.This book will be of interest to students of Latin American politics, US foreign policy, human rights and terrorism and political violence in general.Marcia Esparzais an Assistant Professor in Criminal Justice Department at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City.Henry R.
