Book Description

29 April 1994 Cambridge Latin American Studies (Book 64)
This book analyses the relationship between Peronism and the Argentine working class from the foundation of the Peronist movement in the mid 1940s to the overthrow of Peron's widow in 1976. It presents an account of such crucial issues as the role of the Peronist union bureaucracy and the impact of Peronist ideology on workers. Drawing on a variety of untapped sources, Daniel James confronts many of the dominant myths which have surrounded the movement. He argues that its role in containing working-class militancy cannot be explained solely in terms of manipulation, corruption or union gangsterism. The integration of Peronism into Argentine society has always been a complex and fragile operation, constantly undermined by the survival of the movement's original heretical content: its vision of a juster society in which the claim of the working class for a recognition of its social and political weight would be accepted.

Review

'This book is notable for its deft portrait of a working class which has been both active and passive, demonstrating both a capacity to organize and fight to protect its interests and a willingness to demobilize and accept compromise when circumstances demanded. James has rejected the simple answers of those who have ascribed working-class passivity to manipulation or corruption, and has succeeded in shedding a great deal of light upon the complexities engendered by these dual traits.' Joseph A. Page, The Americas

4.0 out of 5 stars Blurring the line between Unions and the National State 5 May 2000
By Edgardo J. Fernandez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Peronism managed to control the Union movement in Argentina. Working from the national state, Perón moved to legalize long-sought rights of Argentine workers (like paid yearly vacations). He also took the time to crush or isolate any dissent with him within the Union movement. And guaranteed to the Union "bosses" some privileges (like having only one Union legalized for each kind of workers).
The book tells the story.
