Dr. Rubio addresses the United States foreign policy towards Chile between the years 1981 and 1990, focusing on its influence in the Chilean political stage. As result of domestic and international factors, the Ronald Reagan administration changed its traditional foreign policy towards dictatorships, supporting a democratic transition in Chile that removed General Augusto Pinochet as head of State in 1990, and guaranteed political stability and its own interests in the region. During this final decade of the Cold War, factors like a fear of potential revolutionary threat and necessity to promote neoliberal economy, among others factors are key in the U.S. foreign policy related to Chile and Latin America in general.
