Book News Annotation:

This book studies the forces which made and sustained Rosas, and examines through him the roots of the caudillo tradition in Argentina. It reconstructs the world of great estates and the rise to power of their proprietors, establishing the relation of patron and client, of master and peon, and the basis of political allegiance at the time. The book follows the career of Rosas as a classical caudillo, who rescued his people from fear and delivered them into the hands of a dictatorship.

Synopsis:

Argentine Caudillo: Juan Manuel de Rosas is John Lynch's new edition of his 1981 book, which is now out of print.

The figure of Juan Manuel de Rosas dominates the history of Argentina in the first half of the nineteenth century. The present book studies the forces which made and sustained Rosas, and examines through him the roots of the caudillo tradition in Argentina.

Argentine Caudillo provides a detailed study of the use of state terror as an instrument of policy, one of the few such studies for any period of Latin American history. There is no book which duplicates this work either inside Argentina or outside.

Carefully preserving the identity of its predecessor, the new edition updates the background history and adjusts to recent trends in the study of the Rosas period concerning the estancia and agrarian regime, the political ideology of Rosas, the family, and community bases of power.

Synopsis:

Argentine Caudillo: Juan Manuel de Rosas, is John Lynch's new edition of his 1981 book, shortened for classroom use. The figure of Juan Manual de Rosas dominates the history of Argentina in the first half of the nineteenth century. Charles Darwin, who met him on campaign against the Indians, described him as _a man of extraordinary character,_ the lord of vast estates and, for over twenty years, absolute ruler of Buenos Aires and its province. The book follows the career of Rosas as a classical caudillo, who rescued his people from fear and anarchy and delivered them into the hands of a great dictatorship. Leader of the gauchos, yet representative too of the powerful landed proprietors and cattle exporters, Rosas established an early prototype of a totalitarian state and employed systematic terror to defend his rule. Argentine Caudillo: Juan Manuel de Rosas is an excellent scholarly and objective modern history for students as well as scholars on this powerful figure in Latin America.
