Indigenous peoples in Indo-Afro-Latin America, especially Bolivia and Ecuador, are rising up to take control of their own lives and act in solidarity with others to save the planet. They are calling for new, yet ancient, practices of plurinational, participatory, and intercultural democracy. They champion ecologically sustainable development; community-based autonomies; and solidarity with other peoples locally, regionally, and internationally – what they describe as “unity in diversity.” Their values are often different than those of the United States or Europe. One indigenous leader has stated: “We give what money we have not to banks to collect interest but to others – and their gratitude is the interest we receive.”

Simón Bolívar ya lo había profetizado: "Los Estados Unidos parecen destinados por la Providencia para plagar América de miserias en nombre de la libertad". Desde entonces hasta hoy las relaciones de Estados Unidos con América latina han sido cualquier cosa menos apacibles.

James D.Cockcroft, profesor de LASA (Latin American Studies Association, la organización profesional de latinoamericanistas de Estados Unidos), se propone en América latina y Estados Unidos. Historia y política país (siglo XXI) desenredar, por país, la relación siempre tormentosa entre los dos subcontinentes.
