5708 - The British response to revolution in Latin America

The paper analyses British reactions to three 20th century Latin American revolutions: Mexico, Bolivia and Cuba. It traces the responses and policies of the British government, noting how as Britain lost global pre-eminence and imperial pretensions it had to acquire a more modest and realistic stance, which implied (a) scant power to affect Latin American circumstances but (b) better comprehension of Latin American revolutionary dynamics.
