3 most important things from the semester

  1. While all of the different Latin American countries are often grouped together in one clump, each country is incredibly diverse with very different histories, cultures, and government systems. 
  2. The different roles the US played in interfering with many Latin American governments and revolutions and how that connected back to broader Cold War politics. 
  3. The concept of Liberation Theology and how that separated Nicaragua from other revolutions as they were not strictly against religion as many other revolutions were and the Catholic Church played a pivotal role in the revolution.
