Review:

"This book makes a major contribution to the analysis of ways in which South American geopolitical thinking tend to influence and aggravate regional conflicts.... This well-structured book demonstrates the central thesis that little studied and less understood geopolitical thinking is one cause of the rising propensity toward conflict in South America.... Child is very good at synthesizing a widely scattered literature and this is the major contribution of the book. Students of South American conflicts now have at their disposal a veritable handbook cataloguing geopolitical thinking by country and by specific conflict.... Having systematically surveyed the impact of geopolitical thinking on regional conflicts, other efforts to assess the multiple causes of South American conflicts may now build on Child's findings."-South Eastern Latin Americanist
