Color illustrated dust jacket. First Edition. "Until 1930, Argentina was one of the great hopes for stable democracy in Latin America. Argentines themselves believed in the destiny of their nation to become the leading Latin American country in wealth, power, and culture. But the revolution of 1930 unleashed the scourges of modern militarism and chronic instability in the land. Since 1930 the Argentine armed forces, or factions of the armed forces, have overthrown the government five times. For more than three and a half decades, militarism has been the central problem in Argentine political life. Marvin Goldwert interprets the rise, growth, and development of militarism in Argentina from 1930 to 1966" [from the dust jacket]. In Very Good+ Condition: top edges of pages slightly stained.
