This research examines Tad Szulc’s writings and performance (1926-2001) in inter-American post-war relations. He was an American intellectual relevant to inter-American relations in the second half of the twentieth century. He was a press professional linked to The New York Times. He made an itinerant journalistic coverage that crossed America writing on key issues of politics at the time: development; nationalism and communism. He spoke with heads of state, bureaucrats and intellectuals, and worked closely with state and private initiatives across the continent, including governments, large corporations and intelligence services. His journalistic work and books published between September 1955 and May 1965. He examines the sociopolitical analyzes that the journalist formulated of the region and the foreign policy of the United States, his trajectory with private institutions, administrations and government agencies in the States United States and Latin America. In that period, Szulc wrote more than one thousand five hundred articles, articles, reviews and travel reports and launched five books on Latin America. These publications are the central sources of research. In addition to these, this work examines a roll of periodicals, diplomatic dispatches, intelligence reports, official speeches and memoir books. This research investigates the role of the United States’s international correspondence for inter-American post-war relations. It mobilizes recurrent interpretations for this question that emphasize the correspondents as: interpreters of Latin American reality; critics of internal and external politics; tentacles of US political, military, and economic power; agents of Latin American governments and interests. The thesis argues that all these roles are simultaneous and that the correspondent is a mediator with his own interests.
