"Sheinin's study is particularly strong on the cultural interchange between Argentina and the United States. He draws from his earlier research to provide interesting and detailed coverage of the juxtapositioning of the two countries within the Pan-American movement and of the intricate negotiations surrounding the Argentine nuclear program in the 1970s and 1980s. This thoughtful overview fills a significant remaining gap in the United States and the Americas series."
—Ken Lehman, Hampden-Sydney College
From the perspectives of both countries, Sheinin discusses such topics as Pan-Americanism, petroleum, communism and fascism, and foreign debt. Although the general trajectory of the two countries' relationship has been one of cooperative interaction based on generally strong and improving commercial and financial ties, shared strategic interests, and vital cultural contacts, Sheinin also emphasizes episodes of strained ties. These include the Cuban Revolution, the Dirty War of the late 1970s and early 1980s, and the Falklands/Malvinas War. In his epilogue, Sheinin examines Argentina's monetary crash of December 2001, when the United States-in a major policy shift-refused to come to Argentina's rescue.
