Argentina's Missing Bones : Revisiting the History of the Dirty War Paperback

Part of the Violence in Latin American History series

Description

Argentina's Missing Bones is the first comprehensive English-language work of historical scholarship on the 1976-83 military dictatorship and Argentina's notorious experience with state terrorism during the so-called dirty war.

It examines this history in a single but crucial place: Cordoba, Argentina's second largest city.

A site of thunderous working-class and student protest prior to the dictatorship, it later became a place where state terrorism was particularly cruel.

Considering the legacy of this violent period, James P.

Brennan examines the role of the state in constructing a public memory of the violence and in holding those responsible accountable through the most extensive trials for crimes against humanity to take place anywhere in Latin America.
