Secret Wars and Secret Policies in the Americas, 1842-1929 by Friedrich E. Schuler



The conflicts that culminated in the First and Second World Wars had their origins in the rise of imperial powers in North America, Europe, and Asia in the late nineteenth century and the imperialist quests for the resources of colonies and former colonies. American expansionists, encouraged by a growing .

At the center of Schuler’s argument is his contention that Latin America really mattered in the long term planning of the militaries and foreign ministries of the aforementioned nations. This is one of the most important contributions of the book, because Latin American historians have most often viewed the interests of Spain, Italy Japan, and Germany in the region as primarily a post-World War I phenomenon.

In his ambitious and provocative new book, Secret Wars and Secret Policies in the Americas, 1842-1929, Friedrich Schuler traces the evolution of secret German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish policies in the Western hemisphere, from the tentative emigration regulations of the 19th century to the underhanded arms sales of the 1920s. Schuler aims to uncover the roots of fascist governments' meddling in the Americas during the Second World War by examining the development of these methods. that were already underway among arms dealers, military officers, and dictators in the 1920s. In each of these sections, Schuler pays attention to both high-level government policies and low-level individual activities that shaped the international trends and processes he describes.

The conflicts that culminated in the First and Second World Wars had their origins in the rise of imperial powers in North America, Europe, and Asia in the late nineteenth century and the imperialist quests for the resources of colonies and former colonies. American expansionists, encouraged by a growing U.S. Navy, nurtured U.S. policies with illusions of easy access to South America. Policy makers in the fledgling empires of Germany, Japan, Spain, and Italy relied on clandestine means to rival U.S. ambitions. In this original and thoroughly researched book, based on new sources from previously unused collections in Germany and Spain, Friedrich E. Schuler details their attempts to suborn ethnic groups within Latin America but also the United States to establish ethnic "beachheads" that would serve to undermine U.S. interests. These deeply disturbing lessons became central historical reference points for U.S. policy makers during World War II.

Not surprisingly, though rarely covered in Latin American historiography, Latin American nations, but also Spain, developed their own plans to exploit these imperialist rivalries after World War I. The resulting intrigue and subterfuge revealed in this revisionist study add a fascinating new dimension to our understanding of transpacific and transatlantic politics during this critical period of world history.
