(p.1) Introduction
Somoza and Roosevelt


Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter begins with the discussion of the death and legacy of Franklin Roosevelt, primarily his policy of good neighbourism. It was mentioned that studies dealing with the good neighbour period were very few; therefore it was also mentioned that the book is a study in diplomatic history adopting a chronological approach. The study also considers the issue of diplomatic interference in US-Nicaraguan relations and the extent to which, in the context of each phase, the United States usefully effected the proclaimed central tenet of its policy. This book attempts to show what demands can reasonably be made on the history of the good neighbour policy in Nicaragua, and the true nature of diplomatic relations between the governments of Anastasio Somoza and Franklin Roosevelt.

Keywords:   good neighbour policy, Franklin Roosevelt, Anastasio Somoza, good neighbourism, US-Nicaraguan relations, diplomatic history
