    BENJAMIN O. DAVIS, JR.: AMERICAN. By Benjamin O. Davis, Jr. Washington: Smithsonian Institution Press, 1991, 442 pp. $19.95.

    General Davis was the first black to graduate from West Point in this

    century (1936). He retired as a lieutenant general in the Air Force after a

    distinguished career. This moving autobiography, written with under stated passion and without rancor, describes the appalling ostracism the author endured as a cadet and young officer and the positive changes after

    World War II that opened opportunity to all officers with diminished

    regard to race.

    THE CARDINAL IN THE CHANCERY AND OTHER RECOLLEC TIONS. By Alfred Puhan. New York: Vantage Press, 1990, 228 pp. $16.95.

    Born in Germany in 1913, Ambassador Puhan came to the United States as a youth, played an important role in Voice of America radio broadcasts to Germany during World War II, and in 1952 joined the foreign service.

    He served as ambassador to Hungary, 1969-73. The title of this entertain

    ing memoir refers to Joszef Cardinal Mindszenty's awkward residence in

    the American embassy at that time.

    CHILE AND THE UNITED STATES: EMPIRES IN CONFLICT. By William F. Sater. Athens (GA): University of Georgia Press, 1991, 249 pp. $30.00 (paper, $15.00).

    An interesting overview of the contentious history of U.S.-Chilean relations. Sater argues that Chile in the early nineteenth century saw itself as a political and economic equal and as a cultural superior; thus much of Chile's relationship with the United States over the past century must be

    understood in terms of its efforts to cope with the obviously greater success

    of the United States. At a time when Chile seems prepared to be the United

    States' closest South American partner, this history is a useful reminder

    that "Chile and the United States still entertain expectations of the other,

    expectations that neither nation can fulfill."

    ELUSIVE FRIENDSHIP: A SURVEY OF U.S.-CHILEAN RELATIONS.

    By Heraldo Mu?oz and Carlos Portales. Boulder (CO): Reinner, 1991, 109

    pp. $22.00. Chile's current ambassador to the Organization of American States and

    the director general of Chile's Foreign Ministry wrote this history of

    Chilean-U.S. relations, focusing primarily on the Pinochet period, when

    they were both academic social scientists prominent in the opposition. They argue that conflict and tension have usually prevailed in U.S.-Chilean relations. Bilateral friendship has been elusive because of cultural and

    diplomatic rivalries, economic conflict, U.S. interventionism and?during the Pinochet years?because Chile contravened the basic values of U.S.
