How Other Countries Viewed the Monroe Doctrine Great Britain: The British thought it was directed to towards them and its Canadian claims British textbooks refer to it as “security” while Latin American texts refer to it as “economic interests” Brazil: The Napoleonic Wars and the continental blockade affected the trade between North America and Latin America. The United States and Britain took their time with acknowledging the Brazilian Independence and The U.S was the first to realize afterwards. Caribbean: The Americans made it very clear to other colonies/countries that they were in control of the american hemisphere; britain has no power over them Americans and other countries joined a warning to not invade spain Felt threatened Mexico: The Mexican text is more critical of the ambition of the U.S. and how it thought it could control land without anyone’s agreeing France: France wanted to remind Latin America that their security relied on their Royal Navy, not America. They saw American independence as an unfriendly act. They did not take the Doctrine seriously, believed it to be a bluff.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
