This Memoranda aims to (1) draw attention to the increasingly important role of Germany in the Latin American world, and (2) provide an opportunity to analyze how countries possessing different national interests, policies, and capabilities have acted in a single world region. This is the third of a group of RAND Memoranda on the relations of nonhemispheric countries to Latin America. The first two studies, Japan and Latin America by Yoshinori Ohara, and Italy and Latin America by Fabio Luca Cavazza, were issued as RM-5388-RC and RM-5400-RC in November 1967.
