About the Authors
  • Founded in 1891, the Unión Cívica Radical, generally known as the Radical Party, is the oldest national political party in Argentina. As the strongest opposition party during the 1890s, a pivotal decade in the birth of Argentina's party system, the Radical Party effected a critical development in Argentine politics: it created a system of open confrontation and political competition. This study offers not merely a revised version of the party's story but also a new perspective on the politics of the nation as a whole.

    • Focuses on the often ignored formative years of the Radical Party
    • Offers a new perspective on Argentine political development
    • Examines previously neglected aspects of the party's history

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Alonso has given us a truly important book." The Americas

    "For the most of "the Russian Revolution, 1917" Rex A. Wade suceeds admirably in balancing a lucid guide to the manifold complexities of 1917 with a strong and well-founded interpretation. Taking the book as a whole, Wade's clear exposition and sense of drama, combined with an expectional command of the secondary literature, will make this the standard account of Russia in 1917 for a long time to come. Is Lars T Lih, Montreal, Quebec THE HISTORIAN, REVIEWED SUMMER, 2002

    "her suggestive and well-researched book contributes to the literature on Argentine political parties and is useful for its questioning of accepted ideas." American Historial Review Dec 2001

    "It is a welcome advance on a topic that will continue to attract scholarly work." Historian

    "Alonso's work represents a key contribution to an understanding of this decisive political phase in Argentina...this is an important book that deserves a careful reading by all those who seek to understand the complex nature of Argentine politics in the twentieth century." Canadian Journal of Political Science
