Peronism and Argentina examines the history, origins, and contemporary directions of Peronism, the most important populist movement in twentieth-century Latin America. Written from an introductory and interdisciplinary perspective, this volume includes contributions from historians, political scientists, and sociologists. These provocative essays clarify many misconceptions about the nature of Peronism and explain how the movement has been interpreted by intellectuals and how it has influenced Argentine politics and civil society over the last half century. Peronism and Argentina also includes essays on the present Peronist government under Carlos Menem?s rule.
James P. Brennan is a member of the history department at the University of California, Riverside.

Editorial Reviews

This volume is the best and most complete discussion in any language of the evolution of Peronism, a little-known and yet very important ideology and political movement. The significance of Peronism transcends the case of Argentina, a country it reshaped two times in this century, for its incarnations represent possible models for some of the new democracies in different parts of the world.
