About the Book

First Published in 2002. Routledge is an imprint of Taylor & Francis, an informa company.


"[This book] represents an important contribution to the literature on international affairs and diplomatic history. Argentine-US relations have improved dramatically in the last ten years, yet it is not obvious why the turnaround occurred. To my knowledge, this is the first English-language book to describe the transformation and attempt to identify its domestic and international causes. The book should become a standard reference in the field."-Professor Michael Tomz, Stanford University."

"…an insightful analysis of the evolution of relations between countries that have often been at odds with each other. The volume is particularly useful in its nuanced analysis of the new policy directions under President Carlos S. Menem - his government represented a critical juncture in redefining the bilateral relationship in the context of rapid and unexpected shifts within the context of globalization. The volume provides a much needed and authoritative review of the relationship, its evolution, and its interaction with key shifts in the post-Cold War era." -- Riordan Roett, The Sarita and Don Johnston Professor and Director of the Western Hemisphere Program, School for Advanced International Studies, Johns Hopkins University

"A valuable contribution for understanding one of the most complex phenomena within the hemisphere: Argentine-North American relations. The United States and Argentina covers the history and present of these relations objectively and persuasively." -- -Mario Rapoport, Director of the Institute of Research on Economic and Social History Faculty of Economic Sciences University of Buenos Aires
