Excerpt from Rural Life in Argentina

There is a great volume of well-documented, historical information and an ample body of descriptive materials written by Argentines, but very little of it deals with the modern era and even less with what might be called local history. The appraisal of modern sociolggical literature in Argentina is very difficult because books written in this field are most often published by authors themselves and do not therefore run the gauntlet of the careful criticism of the book editors of great publishing companies, much less pass through the sieve of ruthless criticism of professional colleagues. Some authors of this type of literature carefully document their assertions; others leave the reader with only the author's assertions as proof of the accuracy of statements. There are, of course, notable exceptions. Empirical research is not widespread in Argentina and it is the author's hope that not the least among the contributions of this book will be that its omissions, errors in interpretation, and lack of data on many important aspects of Argentine rural life will stimulate Argentine scholars to correct the errors and fill in the omissions. Only when they do will an adequate description and analysis of the rural segment of Argentine culture be available to Argentine people and others.
