Political Epilogue

  • Guido di Tella
Part of the St Antony’s/Macmillan Series book series


This story is now coming to an end. It has been a hectic and a sorry one. Some of its characteristics are indeed unique, in particular the intensity of its conflicts; others are not so unusual, particularly if viewed against the background of the economic and political instability which has haunted Argentina over a period of more than fifty years. One should not forget that since the Second World War the country has experienced four civilian governments and five military interventions and has had, in all, ten appointed and seven elected presidents, of whom only one finished his constitutional term.
