In this book, China-Latin America relations experts Margaret Myers and Carol Wise examine the political and economic forces that have underpinned Chinese engagement in the region, as well as the ways in which these forces have shaped economic sectors and policy-making in Latin America. The contributors begin with a review of developments in cross-Pacific statecraft, including the role of private, state-level, sub-national, and extra-regional actors that have influenced China-Latin America engagement in recent years. Part two of the book examines the variety of Latin American development trajectories borne of China’s growing global presence. Contributors analyse the effects of Chinese engagement on specific economic sectors, clusters (the LAC emerging economies), and sub-regions (Central America, the Southern Cone of South America, and the Andean region). Individual case studies draw out these themes. This volume is a welcome addition to the growing body of literature on China-Latin America relations. It illuminates the complex interplay between economics and politics that has characterized China’s relations with the region as a second decade of enhanced economic engagement draws to a close. This volume is an indispensable read for students, scholars and policy makers wishing to gain new insights into the political economy of China-Latin America relations.

Bush II, Obama, and the Decline of U.S. Hegemony in the Western Hemisphere applies competing definitions and conceptions of hegemony to various foreign policy initiatives and events during the administrations of George W. Bush and Barack H. Obama to test whether they manifest a decline in traditional United States dominance and leadership in the Western Hemisphere. In particular, the book examines the continued relevancy of the Inter-American system, the failure to establish a Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA), and the stillborn Energy and Climate Partnership of the Americas (ECPA). It also discusses the implications of the People’s Republic of China becoming a major trading partner and important source of financing and investment capital throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. The book provides critical reviews of Plan Colombia, the Merida Initiative, Pathways to Prosperity in the Americas, the Central American Regional Security Initiative (CARSI), the Caribbean Basin Security Initiative (CBSI), 100,000 Strong in the Americas, and the restoration of normal U.S. diplomatic relations with Cuba. There are extensive analyses, unusual for a work in English, on the Alianza Bolivariana para los Pueblos de Nuestra América (ALBA), Comunidad de Estados Latinoamericanos y del Caribe (CELAC), and Unión de Naciones Suramericanas (UNASUR).

Im ökonomischen Boom der Nachkriegsjahrzehnte wuchs die Bedeutung des Öls für das Funktionieren moderner Wirtschafts- und Gesellschaftsordnungen und damit auch für die Legitimität liberal-demokratischer Staatsgebilde. Als die OPEC im Oktober 1973 den Ölpreis drastisch erhöhte und die OAPEC die Öllieferung beschränkte, um Druck im Nahostkonflikt auszuüben, kam dies weder plötzlich noch überraschend, zeigte aber in aller Deutlichkeit, dass die Politik in Westeuropa und den USA von einer Grundlage abhing, die sie selbst nicht kontrollieren konnte. Regierungen begegneten dieser Herausforderung ihrer Souveränität mit einem Ensemble von nationalen und internationalen Maßnahmen vom Ausbau des ölbezogenen Wissens, des Petroknowledge, über die Umstrukturierung der Energiesektoren bis zu diplomatischen Initiativen, um die Welt des Öls neu zu ordnen. Die Untersuchung dieser souveränitätspolitischen Strategien und ihrer medialen Kommunikation verortet die Ölkrise in den Transformationsprozessen der 1970er Jahre und legt zugleich deren historiographische Neubewertung als Beginn unserer Zeit nahe.
