United States involvement in regime change in Latin America

Involvement of the United States in regime change in Latin America most commonly involved US-backed coups d'état aimed at replacing left-wing leaders with right-wing, usually military and authoritarian regimes. It was most prevalent during the Cold War in line with the Truman Doctrine of containment, although some instances occurred during the early-20th-century "Banana Republic" era of Latin American history to promote American business interests in the region.
