Argentina's Missing Bones : Revisiting the History of the Dirty War Paperback
Part of the Violence in Latin American History series
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.
