"A comptent… account of U.S. Chilean relations since the end of the Cold War." -- Foreign Affairs
"By far the most useful analysis of the U.S.-Chilean relationship that I have read. The United States and Chile is the book those of us who study inter-American relations have awaited-the one that begins by describing the nuts and bolts of today's rapidly evolving and increasingly complex relationship, and then explains how this ostensibly quirky relationship is driven by core interests, and why these interests can be expected to continue producing today's often-confusing mixture of conflict, cooperation, and accommodation." -- Lars Schoultz, William Rand Kenan, Jr., Professor of Political Science, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
"Mares and Rojas Aravena have made an important contribution to the study of inter-American relations by presenting a persuasive argument regarding the issues confronting the two nations during the 1990s." -- American Political Science Review
