In the Shadow of Peron Juan Atilio Bramuglia and the Second Line of Argentina's Populist Movement

by Raanan Rein

In the Shadow of Peron Juan Atilio Bramuglia and the Second Line of Argentina's Populist Movement Synopsis

Populism has been one of the most important phenomena in the political and social history of Latin America. In the Shadow of Peron challenges several commonly held assumptions about the nature of populism and the relations between the charismatic leader and the popular masses. Devoted to the second line of Peronist leadership in Argentina from the 1940s onwards, it focuses on the figure of Juan Atilio Bramuglia, who tried to offer an alternative path for the movement. The volume stresses the heterogeneous nature of Peronism and traces the various ideological sources of its doctrine. It also analyzes Peron's machinations in order to maintain his leadership and eliminate any opposition within the movement.

In the Shadow of Peron Juan Atilio Bramuglia and the Second Line of Argentina's Populist Movement Press Reviews

Rein, one of today's best political and diplomatic historians of Latin America, is the most innovative student of Peronism to have emerged in the last two decades. This is no small accomplishment if one considers the volume of existing scholarly literature in the field. In this book, he exploits a traditional genre (political biography) to explore new questions such as the role of the secondary leadership in the Peronist regime and the domestic dimensions of international relations in a country of immigrants. -- Jose Moya * University of California atLos Angeles * This superbly researched and translated work should certainly appeal to scholars and students interested in the history of Peronism in Argentina and populism in 20th-century Latin America. Highly recommended. -- CHOICE
