B A Bob Jones University,M A Appalachian State University. Chairperson Lynne Getz Ph D, Following World War II nationalist strongman Juan Per n influenced the. Argentine national identity through his controversial political economic and. social reforms Though a popular friend of the proletariat Per n earned many. enemies by ignoring and alienating the land owning elites the middle class and. the liberal intelligentsia By following the personal histories of journalists Jacobo. Timerman and Robert Cox editors of major Buenos Aires news sources La. Opini n and The Buenos Aires Herald this paper will chronicle and analyze the. shifts in individual and national Argentine identities beginning during the. polarizing era of Peronism and extending through the Dirty War. Due to a series of personal and societal shocks designed to simultaneously. eradicate alleged political subversives and implement neoliberal economic. policies via disaster capitalism Argentines ceased to identify as pro or anti. Per n but rather developed their evolving personalities around the memory of the. citizens disappeared at the hand of the National Reorganization Process or. Proceso junta Timerman Cox and their constituent readers including the. members of the human rights group the Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo shaped. their own histories and the history of their country by fearlessly carrying. Argentina through a bloody Dirty War and fighting on behalf of the voiceless. the thousands of Argentine disappeared,Acknowledgments.

Introduction to Historical Context, In 1930 Argentina experienced a political and economic turning point As the.
Great Depression wreaked havoc upon most of the world s economy Argentina found a. niche in global trade by exporting grain wheat and other primary materials for. production to the Northern Hemisphere The Argentine ruling class wealthy landowners. with strong ties to imperialist Great Britain pushed for a strengthening of bilateral trade. with the United Kingdom via 1933 s Roca Runciman Pact which gave the Argentine. state greater control over the regulation of both capital and exports The formation of a. Banco Central in 1935 permitted the government to regulate the exchange of money the. formation of the National Grain and Meat Boards tightened regulations upon the prices of. commodities for export These regulations translated to a thriving economy When the. rest of the world went bankrupt Argentina packed her coffers full 1. During the Depression Argentina set itself upon a trajectory for future inward. expansion or a nationalized focus on regulation of capital and resources inside the. borders of Argentina In 1930 the economic successes of Argentina coincided with. political turmoil after sixty eight years of civilian rule Argentines witnessed the upset of. their government Between 1930 and 1976 nine successful military coups d tat and. twenty one separate presidents ruled Argentina The varying agendas and tumultuous. 1James P Brennan Prolegomenon to Neoliberalism The Political Economy of.

In 1946 during this time of post war success military colonel Juan Domingo. Per n triumphantly took the presidential office introducing Argentina to the first wave of. political economic and social Peronism 4 Peronism became synonymous with the. enduring cult around the populism of Per n Per n s populism entailed a focus on the. needs of the masses the workers over individual civic liberties The masses were great. in number and appreciated a president who spoke on behalf of their previously ignored. needs Populist Peronism translated to a strong national Argentine identity sentiments of. 2 Thomas C Wright State Terrorism in Latin America Chile Argentina and.

Argentina s economy internationally was to turn economic focus inward developing. technology and production 5, Per n augmented the economic reforms of the 1930s continuing on the pre. existing political and economic trends of internalization and nationalization The populist. hero understood the limitations of local capitalists specifically in relation to his changing. policies and in order to best grow the middle class he nationalized the nation s railroads. protected tariffs controlled imports and exports and demanded import licenses all. direct extensions of the tenents set forth in the Roca Runciman Pact Per n did not turn. the economy of Argentina upside down rather he let it run an organic course on an. existing trajectory Within that trajectory Peronism did not uproot the Argentine. chronology or infuse a new found national identity in Argentines rather Peronism. through economic and social reforms and with populism and sentiments of Argentine. nationalism at the heart deepened the identity of the Argentine citizen 6. 5 Naomi Klein The Shock Doctrine The Rise of Disaster Capitalism New York.
