During the past 60 years, the United States has become a great power while Argentina's international stature has steadily declined. These facts, compounded by history and culture, have contributed to the ups and downs of the complex U.S.-Argentine relationship, one of the most volatile and conflict-ridden in the western hemisphere. This symposium volume, bringing together 15 Argentine experts and seven from the United States, illuminates the relationship in the late 1980s, at a time when it seemed surprisingly positive.
