Reviews

"The book will be of value to professionals and graduate students interested in Argentina, Peronism, and populism, and several chapters would make excellent assigned reading for undergraduate or graduate courses-especially the chapters on Evita, incomes policy, religion, and voting patterns."
--American Political Science Review
"The essays serve both historical insight and current concerns, and cover a full range of economic, political, and social aspects, including the memorable and unique Evita. A solid and deserving book."
--Foreign Affairs
"The book has a wealth of statistics and surveys' data, which make it very useful for those who intend to interpret Argentina's reality. . . . Unlike so many other scholarly books on Peronism, Juan Perón and the Reshaping of Argentina mixes a solid socio-political academic background with a well-planned and presented series of approaches to a multifaceted and difficult theme."
--New York City Tribune
