Publisher Comments:

Retired navy officer Adolfo Scilingo was the first man ever to break the Argentine militarys pact of silence, stunning his compatriots and the world by openly confessing his participation in the hideous practice of pushing live political dissidents out of airplanes during Argentinas dirty war.

Available for the first time in paperback, with a new introduction by Judge Gabriel Cavallo on the upcoming military trials and a new epilogue by the author, Confessions of an Argentine Dirty Warrior includes the complete text of Scilingos confession in the form of interviews given to Argentinas best-known investigative journalist, Horacio Verbitsky, along with an afterword by Juan Méndez, putting these events in the context of the dirty war.

About the Author

Horacio Verbitsky is Argentinas leading investigative journalist, winner of the 1995 Latin American Studies Association Media Award, and author of a dozen books. He also presides over Argentinas main human rights organization, the Center for Legal and Social Studies. He lives in Buenos Aires.
