Argentine Caudillo is an excellent abridged edition of Lynch's classic study on Rosas. In a volume widely recognized as one of the leading works in English on nineteenth-century Argentina, Lynch covers comprehensively the period of Rosas's ascendancy between the late 1820s and early 1850s. He portrays Rosas the man, the origins of his dictatorship, the objectives of his regime, the use of terror, and the causes of his downfall. Eloquently written and incisively argued, this book will remain the standard study of its subject for many years to come.--David Rock, University of California, Santa Barbara
A matchless portrait, in startling chiaroscuro, of a larger-than-life figure and his turbulent times. It's concise, judicious, compelling, and, above all, a joy to read. Lynch is a master. How fortunate that his biography of Rosas has been retooled for the classroom, and by the master himself!--John Charles Chasteen, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Thanks to Scholarly Resources for making John Lynch's wonderful analysis of the Rosas era available in an accessible version for undergraduate class use. I look forward to using this extraordinary book in my classes.--Lyman L. Johnson, University of North Carolina at Charlotte
