Synopsis: In "Chile and the United States", the third volume to appear in the series "The United States and the Americas", William F.Sater traces the often stormy course of U.S. Chilean relations, covering not only policy decisions but also the overall political, cultural, and economic developments that formed the context in which those policies unfolded. As Sater explains, the Chilean initially believed that they could triumph in the event of a clash with the Americans because of their superior moral commitment and willingness to endure sacrifice. Sater shows, by the end of the 19th century Chile had to face reality; its organizational skills could no longer compensate for a limited population and resource base. In the early 20th century, Sater notes, Chile scored several economic and diplomatic victories over the United States and, after World War II, resorted to various new doctrines and strategies in hopes of regaining its lost glory. Sater contends, rather than accept that geopolitical and economic realities had limited their nation's place in the world, Chileans, blamed the United States for whatever ills befell them - even as they continued to expect American aid. For its part, the United States insisted that Chile accept its counsel in order to receive U.S. economic assistance. This frustrating standoff, Sater shows, is but the latest phase of a contentious relationship, nearly two centuries in the making, that shows no ready signs of disappearing.

"Perez begins in the eighteenth century when the two European colonies made their first, mostly illicit, commerical contacts and proceeds to the uneasy present, a time when the two peoples wage ideological war but retain strong cultural bonds.
