Americans All

Series Title: State Department South America Series


Stresses the importance of the Good Neighbor Policy and Western Hemisphere cooperation in the face of Europe's disintegration. The first half is an historical summary of Latin America. Postulating that youth will build a new world, the last half considers youth at work, youth at school, health conditions, defense, and ends with a plea for American solidarity. (Jane M. Loy, Latin American Research Review, vol.12 no.3, 1977)
