"In this stunning book Ricardo D. Salvatore provides a major methodological, theoretical, and interpretive contribution to U.S. history, Latin American history, U.S.–Latin American relations, and intellectual history by analyzing the workings and complexities of cultural authority, interpersonal networks, and situated knowledges. A significant book by a major scholar." — Emily S. Rosenberg, author of Transnational Currents in a Shrinking World: 1870–1945
"Disciplinary Conquest is certain to generate stimulating debates about the bonds between knowledge and empire and about U.S.–Latin American relations. Ricardo D. Salvatore opens important new paths for research about the nature of American empire in the twentieth century; the origins of Latin American studies; the ties between U.S. academics, government, and foreign policy; the roots of pan-Americanism; F.D.R.'s Good Neighbor Policy; and U.S. conceptualizations of modernization, development, and dependency in relation to Latin America. Intricate, wide-ranging, and provocative, this book should be read by all who study Latin America and anyone interested in knowledge, power, and empire." — Catherine C. LeGrand, coeditor of Close Encounters of Empire: Writing the Cultural History of U.S.-Latin American Relations
