At the height of Latin America’s “Pink Tide” in the mid-2000s, left wing governments developed economic, political and cultural ties with the Arab world as part of a larger effort to disrupt US hegemony globally. These ties build on a long history of relations between the two regions.
The Latin East is a special double issue of Middle East Report resulting from an unprecedented collaboration between MERIP and the North American Congress on Latin America (NACLA) that seeks to explore the roots of Latin American outreach to the Middle East, and the larger processes, problems and possibilities inherent in ties between the two regions.
Both Middle East Report 284/285 as well as NACLA Report on the Americas 50, the companion volume, are available online for free through special agreement between MERIP, NACLA and Routledge.
