THE COLD WAR (1948-1989) After 1948, any intention to transform inequitable social relations in Latin America was regarded as an alignment with the Soviet Union and International Communism. Many Latin American governments, like Argentina and Brazil, had already implemented social reform since the 1930s, and others, like Guatemala and Costa Rica, were starting novel experiments. All of these efforts were met with suspicion and animosity by both the US Government and private corporations.

THE COLD WAR (1948-1989) During McCarthyism, the US supported undercover operations and tracking of selected Latin American leaders. In the 1960s, JFK created the Alliance for Progress to prevent the spread of communism in Latin America (Modernization Theory). Between 1964-1989, all countries in Latin America, with the exception of Mexico, Colombia, and Venezuela, came to be controlled by military rulers (Huntington Thesis).
