Description: This thesis examines how the United States used soft power as a policy tool in Latin America during the Cold War. It examines U.S. intervention attempts in Chile, Guatemala, and Brazil during the Cold War, explains which attempts are examples of soft power, and categorizes these attempts in terms of the goals the United States sought to achieve. It is designed to address two issues in the existing soft power literature: a lack of empirical evidence of soft power's use as a policy tool and a lack of differentiation between the purposes of various soft power attempts.
Degree: Bachelors of Arts in International Relations
