      Interesting in that it looks specifically at the propaganda and cultural aspects of the Peron regime rather than focusing only on political machinations. It gives the reader a decent idea of who Eva and Juan Peron were but if you want to learn more about them you should of course read one of the many biographies.

    2. Julio César

      Tiene partes muy buenas pero, como toda tesis de doctorado, es densa y en muchos tramos, solo para eruditos.
