Re: Sources for teaching - Cold War course

Quick suggestions on Latin America:

Secondary sources:
Stephen Rabe The Killing Zone: The United States Wages Cold War in Latin America (Oxford)
Clara Nieto The Masters of War: Latin America and US Aggression (Seven Stories Press)

Primary go to National Security Archives which is a private research organization.which has published lots of declassified documents.

Hope this is helpful.
