About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1931, this book was written in 'an attempt to interpret to English readers the history of the Argentine people, and in some degree to interpret the character of that people as illustrated by their history'. A second Spanish edition was also published, reflecting a desire 'to make known to Argentine readers the sympathetic interest with which the astonishing advance of their nation from its small beginnings' was viewed in England. The text thus reflects the diplomatic climate of the time in which it was written, as well as providing a comprehensive historical account. Illustrative figures and appendices are included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Argentinian history.
