Dustin Walcher works at the intersection of international, political, economic, and social history.  He is writing a book manuscript that analyzes U.S. and International Monetary Fund efforts to liberalize the Argentine economic system, and the socio-political disruptions those efforts produced, between 1955 and 1969.  Dr. Walcher offers courses on international history, strategy, and modern U.S. history.
