"This exciting volume will become required reading not only in courses relating to the history of Argentina, but also in those surrounding citizenship in a cross-cultural perspective. I am impressed by the quality of essays and the breadth of topics that touch upon how not only states, but also diverse groups have pushed for changes in definitions. Bounded by identities rooted in immigration, gender, science, political parties, and nationalism, this book forces the reader to conceptualize national identities, and hence, national history at its core."
--Donna Guy, Ohio State University
"This volume, an important contribution on a subject that until recently had rarely been explored so systematically, constitutes further evidence of the recent productive transformations in the historiography of twentieth-century Argentina."
--Hispanic American Historical Review
