Because of the extraordinary importance of the World War II years, UPA will publish in their entirety the Confidential Prints for Latin America, 1940-1945. For a combination of security and financial reasons, there is no modern period more poorly covered by the published documentation of the British government-and little or no possibility that the government will ever publish these documents. The lack of access to this material has hindered scholarship for half a century; its availability will play a crucial role in historical research in the coming decades. The documents in Part III cover political, economic, and military affairs; present historical surveys; and record information on heads of missions and other key personalities in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, El Salvador, Uruguay, and Venezuela. Among the topics are: * Latin American countries and the war; * Failed revolution in Peru, 1939; * Ecuador-Peru boundary dispute; * New constitution in Panama; * Tension between the United States and Uruguay; * Position of President Trujillo; * Relations between church and government in Haiti; * Attempted revolution in Argentina, 1943; * Discovery of spy ring in Chile, 1943; * Ministerial changes in Argentina, 1944; * Attempted coup in Colombia, 1944; * Fall of General Ubico of Ecuador; * New Falkland Island postage stamps issued in Chile, 1944; * Venezuela and Dumbarton Oaks agreement; * Inter-American relations; * Pan-American conferences; * Nazi activities in Latin America
