The United States and the Southern Cone: Argentina, Uruguay, and Chile
By Arthur P. Whitaker
Harvard University Press, 1977, 616 pp.

Broad in scope, balanced and judicious, well researched, and written with clarity and grace, this is a work of the highest quality. The period covered for each of the three Southern Cone countries extends from 1810 to the military takeover in Argentina in March 1976.
