In the early 20th century, Argentina possessed one of the world’s most prosperous economies. Since then the country has suffered a series of boom-and-bust cycles that have seen it fall well behind its regional neighbors. At the same time, despite the lack of significant ethnic or linguistic divisions, Argentina has failed to create an over-arching post-independence national identity and its political and social history has been marred by frictions, violence and a 50-year series of military coups d’état. In this book, Jill Hedges analyses of the modern history of Argentina from the adoption of the 1853 constitution until the present day.
