SUMMARY ↠ Peron A Biography Latin America has produced no remarkable or enduring political figure than Juan Peron Born to modest circumstances in 1895 and trained in the military he rose to power during a period of political uncertainty in Argentina A shrewd opportunist who understood the needs and aspirations of the country's workers Peron rode their votes to the presidency and then increased their share of the nation's wealth But he also destroyed the independence of their unions and suppresse. This is a very well written biography about an extremely controversial and complex dictator I had forgotten how the story of Evita was entwined with Per n s story Peron was a special kind of dictator similar to Franco in some ways previous military background balancing opposing forces in a divide and conuer manner to hang on to power but different in other ways I guess one of the most surprising and complex differences are how he was neither a leftist nor a rightist In fact he coined the term Third Way as being somewhere between the two At first this is surprising because of his reputation of sympathy and support for fascists and in particular Nazis In fact it seems that it was opportunistic than idealogical Yes he did turn a blind eye to many Nazis leaving Germany once the Third Reich s fate was sealed but so did a lot of countries note that as military governor of Bavaria Patton turned a blind eye to former Nazi party cadres returning to their jobs after the war Peron espoused a typical Catholic conservative worldview and later in life spouted idiotic theories about Zionist conspiracies and so forth but he also was loved by labor This is because in his uest for power and given his peasant origins he uickly realized that making overtures to the working class and keeping them happy would essentially guarantee his power While this was mostly true it was also a liability that was to cost Argentina heavily in the long run In fact he was kicked out of Argentina for 17 years but they were turbulent years of increasing violence which peaked at the moment of his return Well return may be a strong word since he returned old and sick and barely lasted a year once assuming power before he passed away from untreated medical issues The violence once again surprisingly pitted the peronists of the extreme right which we can understand in a dictatorship against peronists of the extreme left surprising because they claimed legitimacy from Peron s history with the labor movement but were cold hearted killers like those on the extreme right It was a complete mess and cost thousands of lives and years to recuperate for the country As for Evita she was one in a long line of women before and after far younger than Peron that he fell in love with I learned that he even started a sort of sports academy for teen girls that well you can fill in the blanks Evita herself was a dynamic and rather violent public speaker Pretty much extreme right but with the same penchant as Peron for aligning labor with her ideas she did accomplish some social reform and was beloved of the people of Argentina Unfortunately she died young shortly before Peron fled Argentina and her body then underwent a strange and macabre voyage before returning to Argentina with Peron in 1973 I never saw the film with Madonna about Evita but reading just a few reviews it seems that the film had absolutely no connection to reality For example Che Guevara and Evita never met and he was not stalking her In any case having never really been to Argentina I can only go by what Page wrote in this book back in 1982 she is apparently still worshipped in Argentina as a symbol of the decamisados the shirtless ones or the workers that lent their support to the Peronist movementI suppose I need to find a book similar to Out of the Shadows about post Peron Argentina to understand how the state evolved after his passing and how they fell in another hold financially two decades later In any case Page s biography is highly readable and informative about this particular dictator who was a master of Machiavellian politics and remains a very complex figure to try to understand

A good biography of Juan Per n onetime President of ArgentinaPer n was a man s man an athletic ski instructor and boxer an expert political tactician and one of the world s most charming people Tens of thousands adored him and tens of thousands loathed him Apparently he was a political mirror everyone who talked with him thought that Per n agreed with them even if they held views that were 180 degrees apartPer n supported the working class but the author doesn t seem to know if Per n really had sympathy for the worker or just wanted their political support maybe Per n just wanted power Per n only wanted mediocre men in his administration he regarded able men as competitors This practice had bad resultsThe biography of course includes Evita She comes across better than in the musicalThe only problem I had with the book was that all the details of the political turmoil in Argentina during Per n s era were overwhelming Coups and counter coups revolutions one general took over and then the army deposed him etc etc Demasiado

SUMMARY ↠ Peron A Biography 1945; his relationship with the now mythic Evita; the violence and mysterious murders that punctuated his career; his tragic legacy personified by his third wife Isabel who assumed the presidency after his death under the influence of a Rasputin like astrologer; and the continuing appeal of Peronism in Argentina Page's study of Argentine American relations is particularly penetrating esp in its description of the struggle between Peron and US ambassador Spruille Brad. Excelente libro muy completo y muy interesante Generalmente se suele despreciar a autores ue no son argentinos cuando se habla sobre estos temas pero justamente para m muchas veces aportan visiones ue nosotros desde ac damos por sentado y no son cosas ue tengamos ue dar por sentado no son cuestiones de la naturaleza Ciertamente no me volv peronista hasta ue casi por el contrario No dej ue el estudio biogr fico me envolviese y ste ser a un libro ue volver a a leer ya con otro background
