Description
In examining the history of a 19th-century boundary dispute between Chile and Argentina, Rauch offers insights into the motivations and processes of governments vis-a-vis the rationale and support of national military power. As he shows, a military establishment brings enormous costs to developing economies, leads to the formation of professional military elites, and has profound implications for a geographical region.
