Summary note
"Most studies of early Anglo-Argentine diplomacy have concentrated narrowly on trade questions, and on the 1806-07 invasions. The present work is decidedly more ambitious. By chronicling all the exploratory diplomacy that led to Britain's recognition of the Argentine Federation in 1825, Gallo has filled several gaps in the existing literature. He credits the innovative policies of Rivadavia - and the farsighted interest shown by George Canning - with opening the door"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.
