Welcome to this site. I am a Professor of History at the University of Montevallo. My areas of specialization include U.S.-Latin American relations, Chilean history, and the Cold War. This site features my academic publications, project-based initiatives, op-eds, and course syllabi. I received my Ph.D. from the University of California-Riverside.
