5.0 out of 5 stars A thorough work on the Dirty War, May 15, 1999
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: A Lexicon of Terror: Argentina and the Legacies of Torture (Hardcover)
This is an incredibly researched work. Marguerite Feitlowitz has interviewed and probed into Argentina's past with an ear toward the language used and its effect upon the victims of the Dirty War. As a person who has studied and written about this time, I was fascinated to read her approach. The language used by the torturers of Argentina was sinister and telling; she has solved the puzzle of their words and let the world understand their aims and goals. It is a brilliant book, and important for anyone who is interested in 1) Human rights; 2) Latin American history; 3) Human nature; 4) The politics of a nation's memory.

I didn't read this book, but Guerrillas and Generals: The Dirty War in Argentina (Paperback) by Paul H. Lewis remains the best book I ever read, about this Argentina during the dirty war.
