Examines why countries imitate the military systems of one another. A book of theory and history, it builds on and extends the most influential theory in international relations - neorealism. It offers an alternative account for emulation and convergence in the international system. It explains why states make certain choices in how to organize, prepare, and fight wars, and how international structures shape their choices. The work develops a neglected area of neorealism, applies it in new ways, widens its explanatory scope, and offers three rich - and uncommon - historical cases based on archival research.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is a fascinating, impressively documented, and intellectually provocative book which `marries Waltz and Tilly' through the integration of comparative politics and international relations theory. This book will fascinate scholars interested in improving the predictive capacity of neorealist international relations theory; scholars and practitioners seeking to understand the state-building implications of responses to external imperatives; and scholars, practitioners, and citizens who want to understand why and how three South American countries - Argentina, Brazil, and Chile - built modern mass armies at the dawn of the twentieth century." Louis W. Goodman, American University
"Joao Resende-Santos gives us a masterful example of theoretically informed qualitative scholarship in this new book. His findings about the efforts of Argentina, Brazil, and Chile to emulate European military developments are inherently interesting and theoretically important. This book will be of great value to students and scholars of comparative government and international relations." Joseph M. Grieco, Duke University
"This is an important book that will be a 'must read' for scholars studying IR theory, state-building and the Latin American military. Resende-Santos' theory of emulation extends Neo-Realism into new areas and rejuvenates the IR field. The case studies themselves present original and important empirical material that will benefit scholarship across a variety of disciplines." David Mares, University of California, San Diego
