Abstract or Summary
  • During the U.S. military interventions in Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic, and Haiti between 1915 and 1934, Washington equipped members of the its armed forces with civil and political powers that represented a radical departure from the North American military tradition. This abandonment of tradition decisively contributed to both the disappointments of U.S. foreign policy in Central America and the Caribbean during this period and the development of future conflicts in inter-American relations. In the mind of many Latin Americans this period associated democracy with military rule and foreign domination. In addition to modeling military rule and lending credibility to military intervention to future Latin American nations, this policy facilitated and helped to perpetuate some of the most destructive elements of Latin America's military heritage of political activism.
