A long, detailed and competent analysis of the rift between Argentina and the U.S. during World War II, concluding: " . . . the Good Neighbor Policy was undermined by, first, Argentina's refusal to make an all-out commitment to the War against the Axis, and, second, bureaucratic proliferation and competition within the Roosevelt foreign policy establishment and their dramatic effect on the way Washington responded to Argentine neutrality." The bureaucratic disputes pitted the "Latin Americanists"-Welles, Duggan, Bonsai, Collado-against the "Internationalists"-Hull, Breckinridge Long, and others.
