Book Description

Presenting an accessible introduction to Argentina's complex history, this book enables readers to better understand how Argentina's history follows and diverges from other South American nations.


• Serves as an accessible reference work that overviews Argentina's history and recent events, with particular coverage of the rise of presidents Nicolás Kirchner and Cristina Fernández de Kirchner to dominance within the fractured Peronist movement

• Explores the domestic and international factors that shaped Argentina's economic boom and stagnation since 2001

• Addresses the resurgent debate surrounding the collective effort to seek justice for those who fell victim to the state-sponsored terrorism that occurred during the "Dirty War" of the 1970s

• Demonstrates how Argentina's history roughly parallels that of Australia, Canada, and the United States―all nations that are products of colonialism, immigration, and rapid economic growth
