Earlier books include comparative studies of images of the United States in nineteenth-century Latin America (America Imagined, with Axel Korner and Adam Smith, Palgrave, 2012) and on intellectuals and politics in the region.

A recipient of the Guggenheim fellowship, his most recent award is the Chilean National Prize in History (2020).
