After Words: Julia Sweig interviewed by Mark Falcoff

About the Program

This week on After Words, Julia Sweig, senior fellow and director for Latin America studies at the Council on Foreign Relations argues that anti-American sentiment was born in Latin America. She believes Its growth was a direct result of U.S. sponsorship of dictatorships and the corruption of democratic governments in Latin America. In her book "Friendly Fire: Losing Friends and Making Enemies in the Anti-American Century," Ms. Sweig examines the origins of "Anti-America" in Latin America and how it grew over the last half century. She also gives her recommendations on how U.S. political leaders can reduce international anti-Americanism. She is interviewed by Mark Falcoff, Author of "Cuba: The Morning After-- Confronting Castro's Legacy," and Resident Fellow Emeritus on Latin America at the American Enterprise Institute.
