The emphais of this study is upon the dichotomy created by the United States trying earnestly to promost the Good Neighbor policy while at the same time exhibiting an unwillingness to allow complete self-determination by promoting a stable and conservative government. The study proceeds only through 1934 because, by that time, although the Good Neighbor policy continued, it had had its effect upon the Republic of Cuba and the relationships between the two countries had been established in a pattern which would continue until the Castro revolution. In addition, after 1934 there is a void in the amount of primary source material available.
