The United States and Brazil: Limits of Influence

By Robert Wesson
Praeger (with the Hoover Institution), 1981
179 pp.

The first of a projected series on the idea of influence in international relations, this study explores relationships between a superpower-the United States-and a putative Third World client state-Brazil. The stress is on the paradoxes and limits of power: superpower influence on a large state is limited to parallel areas of interest because contemporary standards and widespread competition have made both military and economic power generally unusable.
