Provides insight into U.S. and Chinese involvement in aid, trade, direct investment and strategic ties in Latin America

In recent years, China has become the largest trading partner for more than half the countries in Latin America, and demonstrated major commitments in aid and direct investment in various parts of the region. China has also made a number of strategic commitments to countries like Nicaragua, Cuba, and Venezuela which have long-standing policies opposing U.S. influence in the region. China, the United States, and the Future of Latin America posits that this activity is a direct challenge to the role of the U.S. in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Part of a three-volume series analyzing U.S.-China relations in parts of the world where neither country is dominant, this volume analyzes the interactions between the U.S., China, and Latin America. The book series has so far considered the differences in operating styles between China and the U.S. in Central Asia and Southeast Asia. This third volume unpacks the implications of competing U.S. and Chinese interests in countries such as Brazil and Argentina, and China's commitments in Nicaragua and Venezuela.

This volume draws upon a variety of policy experts, focusing on the viewpoints of South American and Caribbean scholars as well as scholars from outside states. China's new global reach and its ambitions, as well as the U.S. response, are analyzed in detail.A nuanced examination of current complexities and future implications, China, the United States and the Future of Latin America provides readers with varied perspectives on the changing economic and strategic picture in Latin America and the Caribbean.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Given the arrival of the Trump administration, this volume takes on added relevance.China will become an increasingly important option for the region.The authors expertly analyze the general considerations that drive the relationship, and provide expert country analysis on the options available to the major states.This volume carefully explores Chinas perspective on Latin America and convincingly debunks the myth that China seeks to replace the United States.Overall, a very welcome addition to the growing body of literature on Chinas emergence in the region. -- Riordan Roett,Co-editor of Latin America and the Asian Giants: Evolving Ties with China and India
This volume, dealing with Latin America and the Caribbean, presents a complex picture that lies somewhere between [Denoon's] previous two. Denoon and the other contributors describe China's rapidly growing presence as a buyer of raw materials, supplier of manufactured goods, builder of infrastructure, investor, and donor. -- Foreign Affairs
A superb volume which explains China's goals in the region and analyzes how both the United States and Latin American countries have responded. Because the volume covers foreign policy and economics for all the key states in the region, it is an outstanding, original contribution to the field and an invaluable reference book. Denoon has carefully selected the authors of each chapter to reflect divergent perspectives on these developments, so readers can draw their own conclusions about how influential China will become at the southern doorstep of the U.S. -- Joydeep Mukherjee,Managing Director, Standard & Poor's Sovereign Ratings
