This is a very well-written biography about an extremely controversial and complex dictator. I had forgotten how the story of Evita was entwined with Perón's story. Peron was a special kind of dictator - similar to Franco in some ways (previous military background, balancing opposing forces in a divide and conquer manner to hang on to power), but different in other ways. I guess one of the most surprising and complex differences are how he was neither a leftist nor a rightist. In fact, he coine [...]

This is an excellent book that covers the life and governments of Juan Peron. While at times harshly critical of its subject, it is an excellent antidote to the various myths circulating about this talented man.The author acknowledges that Peron had strong sympathies for Mussolini and participated in the 1943 coup d'état against Ramon Castillo. However Page demonstrates that Peron fundamentally believed in democracy. When Peron assumed power it was through the democratic process as he successfu [...]

A good biography of Juan Perón, onetime President of Argentina.Perón was a man’s man – an athletic ski instructor and boxer, an expert political tactician, and one of the world’s most charming people. Tens of thousands adored him, and tens of thousands loathed him. Apparently he was a political mirror: everyone who talked with him thought that Perón agreed with them, even if they held views that were 180 degrees apart.Perón supported the working class, but the author doesn’t seem to [...]

Joseph Page's biography of Juan Peron is masterful in the breadth and scope that it covers. It not only does an excellent job of describing Peron's life and his impact on Argentina but you can also get a sense of the surrounding times and the development of the country. He spends quite a bit of time developing the backdrop for Peron's rise and his influence on the country. Due and fair consideration is given to the role of Eva Peron and for those who are interested in more I recommend the Navarr [...]

Excelente libro, muy completo y muy interesante. Generalmente se suele despreciar a autores que no son argentinos cuando se habla sobre estos temas, pero, justamente, para mí muchas veces aportan visiones que nosotros desde acá damos por sentado, y no son cosas que tengamos que dar por sentado, no son cuestiones "de la naturaleza". Ciertamente no me volví peronista, hasta que casi por el contrario. No dejé que el estudio biográfico me envolviese, y éste sería un libro que volvería a leer [...]

Excelente biografía de Juan Domingo Perón, un personaje interesantísimo y con una historia muy dramática. La influencia de Perón en Argentina ha sido enorme y por ende este libro ayuda a comprender la cultura, la política y la forma de pensar de los argentinos. También son increíbles los paralelos de Perón con Chávez en Venezuela. El autor es muy balanceado y tal como me lo señalara Daniel Barraco, una biografía de Perón tiene que ser escrita por un extrajero para así evitar prejui [...]

This excellent book is apparently a biography, but in actual reality a tragedy. Its main character is not Perón, but the Argentine people.
