This book analyzes the relationship between Peronism and the Argentine working class from the foundation of the Peronist movement in the mid 1940s to the overthrow of Peron's widow in 1976. It presents an account of such crucial issues as the role of the Peronist union bureaucracy and the impact of the Peronist ideology on workers. Drawing on a variety of untapped sources, Daniel James confronts many of the dominant myths that have surrounded the movement. He argues that its role in containing working-class militancy cannot be explained solely in terms of manipulation, corruption, or union gangsterism.

You're a bastard for taking out pages 13-36. Seriously, I'm a damn poor college student at a college who decided to buy new performing arts center instead of upgrade the small and outdated library. My last resource for scholarly works is the internet, and now I am forced to deal with this bullshit.
