History of U.S. - Latin American Relations: Welcome



'This cartoon, "His Neighborly Suggestion," drawn by J.S. Pughe, appeared on the cover of Puck magazine March 25, 1903. It was one of many such depictions of U.S.-Latin American relations in the period, which tended to present growing U.S. power in the region in a positive light, while relying on and helping to disseminate demeaning stereotypes about Latin America.  The caption reads "Now, young man, which I'm digging here [in Panama], I'd like a long period of depression in the Revolution business."
