About this book

This edited volume provides a comprehensive overview of the renewal of academic engagement in the Argentinian dictatorship in the context of the post-2001 crisis. Significant social and judicial changes and the opening of archives have led to major revisions of the research dedicated to this period. As such, the contributors offer a unique presentation to an English-speaking audience, mapping and critiquing these developments and widening the recent debates in Argentina about the legacy of the dictatorship in this long-term perspective.

Reviews

“This is a very fine collection of essays by a rising generation of scholars ready and able to test, revise and expand the existing literature on the Proceso. It takes a peculiar combination of intellectual skill, attention to detail, and emotional resource to engage with one of the most traumatic episodes in Argentine national history. This challenge has been met formidably well across a range of themes and with proper attention to the variety of experience across different social sectors and regions of the country.” (James Dunkerley, Professor, School of Politics and International Relations, Queen Mary University of London, UK)

The Argentinean Dictatorship and its Legacy provides new data and many new insights on a lastingly important major topic in modern Latin American history.” (David Rock, Professor, Department of History, University of California Santa Barbara, USA)
