Argentina, 1516-1987: From Spanish Colonization to Alphonsin Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this comprehensive history, updated to include the climactic events of the five years since the Falklands War, Professor Rock documents the early colonial history of Argentina, pointing to the colonial forms established during the Spanish conquest as the source for Argentina's continued reliance on foreign commercial and investment partnerships. The collapse of Argentina's close western European ties after World War II is thus seen as the underlying cause for her current economic and political crisis.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 453-487) and index.
