Syria. 71 After the Cuban Missile Crisis, Israel perceived Kennedy as the man who had saved the world from destruction. Eban quoted National Security Advisor McGeorge Bundy, who said making the Soviets back down was like forcing Hitler to withdraw from the Rhineland (1936). Eban argued that the Middle East was now of secondary importance, after the Caribbean, Berlin and the Congo. However, he said, the

information work in areas not directly linked to the Cold War, the worldwide nature of the Soviet threat made it dangerous, the overseas ministers argued, to concentrate on areas immediately threatened. Publicity was needed to combat defeatism in Western Europe, and communism in the Caribbean and British possessions generally. In a passage likely to anger the Treasury, it was argued that Britain’s effort

a novelty in the field of military research as it is very similar to the approach put forward during the Spanish American War, almost half a century before the establishment of the Nuremberg Code. At that time, US soldiers were threatened by yellow fever, and outbreaks were so frequent in the Caribbean that President Theodore Roosevelt asked the Army Surgeon General, General George M. Sternberg, to create a commission to

peace after, civil wars. From Latin America and the Caribbean to the Balkans, from the Asia Pacific to Africa, peace processes have attempted to move societies out of often protracted civil warfare, and towards a peaceful system of governance and social relations. Yet, intra-state wars involve complex webs of motives, actors and funding sources, and are notoriously difficult to resolve. The World Bank

Melilla, autonomous regions of Spain situated on the Mediterranean coast of Morocco. These cases weren’t entirely exceptional, precedent being provided by the French overseas départements of Réunion in the Indian Ocean, the Caribbean islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique, and Guyana off the north-east coast of South America. That said, none of these examples meant the EU taking on a formal extra

books that probe its Atlantic connections. 4 Located at the intersection of two models of French colonization, situated at the margin of three empires, linking Europe, North America, and the Caribbean, the colony of Louisiana has been depicted as a veritable crossroads of the Atlantic world. 5 Places as far removed as Nova Scotia and Curaçao have been studied for their Atlantic connections. 6 The Caribbean is one region that is attracting much interest for its Atlantic links. 7 The relationship of the American South and the Atlantic is the subject of a collection

The evolution of a subject
Nicholas Canny

Britain (particularly economic historians) wished to qualify or discredit the Williams thesis, that author had succeeded in bringing some scholars to pay greater attention than they had done previously to the increasing economic importance of Atlantic trade as the seventeenth century proceeded; to the central position of the Caribbean as the source of the commodities that lubricated that trade; and to the importance of the link with Africa that was forged by European traders in search of the slaves who provided the workforce required to cultivate and process the crops

Preempting disorder along the periphery

EU. Beneficiary countries of EU economic and financial assistance are asked to ratify and implement a certain number of international conventions on sustainable development and good governance. 19 For more than thirty years the EU has been linked by special economic treaties with, by now, over seventy developing countries, known collectively as the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) states.

"On the political passions in Europe and America and their implications for Transatlantic History"
Charles S. Maier

has been a powerful history of encounters, interlocking colonial regimes and their crises (including Spanish–British comparisons by John Elliott and Jeremy Adelman) and labour systems embedded in transoceanic exchange whether across the North Atlantic or the Caribbean. But other approaches that examined the interaction of continental Europe with the Americas also thrived: the massive outpouring of studies on Ibero-American slave circuits from the Portuguese onward (Joseph Miller), the comparative studies of the French and American revolutions – pioneered by
