Prising the doors of empire : the Anglo-American Caribbean Commission and the American Quest for a new West Indies, 1938-45

Whitham, A. C. 1999 (has links)
This thesis places the Anglo-American Caribbean Commission, formed in 1942, within the context of the Anglo-American wartime 'special relationship' and examines the political, economic and security motives which lay at the heart of this unique collaboration. Promoted as means for rectifying the problems of a region of extreme need, the AACC only exposed and exacerbated the underlying antagonisms between Britain and the US over the economic and political structure of the world. Debates within the AACC over the role of the West Indian sugar industry, the regulation of tariffs and trade and the future of civil aviation mirrored wider rivalries between Britain and the US over the post-war world economy, the colonial world and their respective roles within a new economic order. What emerges is a picture of the AACC as a vehicle for maintaining the regional security interests of the US and for promoting its broader ambitions for the post-war world in the British territories of the Caribbean. For Britain, who resisted the collaboration, the AACC was part of the price which had to be paid for obtaining American friendship and material assistance in the war effort. The story of the AACC is significant not only for the light it shed upon the Anglo-American wartime relationship and how it exposed the antagonisms which lay so close to its surface, but also for the way it revealed the determination of the US to use the exigencies of war to impose its economic ideals upon Britain and of the tenacity of the Empire to defend even the smallest and least regarded of its possessions. The AACC was a battleground of conflicting British and American visions of a 'new' West Indies, a struggle that scarred the AACC from its inception and eventually led to its death as a truly Anglo-American enterprise.

Cuba in the American mind

Oatham, J. L. 2000 (has links)
The focus of this thesis is America's reaction to the Cuban Revolution of 1959. It is argued that this took the form of a creative construction of an image of Cuba in the American mind. Using original sources it contextualises images of and attitudes towards the island in a number of historical settings. Taking the Newtonian metaphor of an apple falling to the ground. Americans during the nineteenth century saw Cuba as a subject to the pull of political gravitation. During the Spanish American War the spectre of the Cuban independence necessitated a new image: the island became an errant child. This image held until the 1959 Revolution. In the early years of the 1960s American policy makers constructed a new image. After discussing this, the thesis moves on to consider other responses to the Revolution through examining its impact on writers such as Norman Mailer, Allen Ginsberg and Lawrence Ferlinghetti. The adoption of the Revolution by student radicals and advocates of black power is then explored. In spite of such commentator's suggestions that Cuba offered alternatives to contemporary American culture, by the close of the decade the dominant interpretation of the Cuban Revolution was fixed within a Cold War paradigm. The thesis concludes that this Cold War image has remained intact. Today America understands Cuba to be an island subject to a revolution betrayed, held within the grip of a communist and hence inherently evil regime. No accommodation is possible whilst Fidel Castro lives. The American image of Cuba remains frozen in the assumptions of the 1960s.

Back down to earth : the development of space policy for NASA during the Jimmy Carter administration

Damuhn, M. D. 2000 (has links)
Throughout Jimmy Carter's presidency he was pulled in opposite directions between his idealism and the harsh reality of politics. The argument that will be presented throughout this dissertation is this conflict faced by Carter concerning NASA. Historians have neglected the Carter Administration's affairs with NASA because they believe nothing exciting or important happened. The Carter Administration is the only one in the Space Age that Americans have not been in space. I propose to show that, while it might not have been exciting, it was important what Carter did with NASA throughout his Administration. During the 1976 presidential campaign and early in his Administration several Carter advisors recommended that the Shuttle be postponed or even cancelled, but Carter continued his support for the Shuttle. Towards the end of his Administration it took a high level presidential meeting to put the full weight of his presidency behind completing the Shuttle. While Carter was not enthralled with manned space flight he was aware and very supportive of what NASA could do to expand knowledge outward by its robotic exploration of the universe. Several NASA projects, that he supported and started the funding, only came to fruition long after Carter left the White House such as the Hubble Telescope, the Jupiter Galileo project and the Venus Magellan project. Carter also strongly endorsed NASA projects for use on Earth such as communications, weather, environmental, and military satellites. He wanted NASA to meet the needs of the taxpayers who paid for it. He wanted to bring the space agency "back down to earth". This was a consistent theme throughout his Administration. Carter had good plans for NASA but left so many people disappointed who wanted great things from NASA but wound up only with good things.
