Latin America Goes Global: From Diplomacy to Business to Pop Culture, the Ways the Region is Changing the World

The Spring 2013 issue of Americas Quarterly, released on May 2, examines the ways in which Latin America is asserting its new economic and diplomatic influence in the world and the future of U.S. power in the region. The new AQ looks at emerging blocs like UNASUR, IBSA and the Trans-Pacific Partnership, changes in regional and extra-regional commerce flows and foreign direct investment, the stagnation in U.S. scholarship on Latin America, and one of the enduring myths about Latin America's relationship with the United States—the region's supposed anti-Americanism.

Also in the issue, U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs Roberta S. Jacobson shares ten facts that you didn't know about U.S.-Latin America relations.

Plus, read in-depth articles on the NRA's hemispheric efforts to beat back gun control legislation beyond the United States, the Brazilian government's attempt to reform its monetary policy, and the toll that mara violence and extortion is taking on organized labor in Guatemala.
