In the book, "Why Peron Came to Power", editor Joseph Barager states in the introduction that the intention of the book is to argue that Juan Domingo Peron was not responsible for 'all the ills and misfortunes' that afflicted Argentina following WWII. This paper reviews the book, which is a collection of contributions by 21 authors, all of whom contribute short essays on pivotal periods and events leading up to and into the Peron era.

From the Paper:

"Barager's book about the Peronist Revolution resulted from his own personal interest, which led him to receive a "Doherty Foundation Fellowship," allowing him to study the Peron phenomenon; and, he also was awarded a "Penfield Traveling Scholarship" (from the University of Pennsylvania), which paid his way to live, study, research and write in Argentina from 1949 to 1950. Barager's style is straight-forward, and matter-of-fact; he does not launch into a great deal of opinion, but rather, he tries to objectively cover the voluminous material in a non-opinionated style. The scope of the material covered in the book begins in the early 1800s in Argentina, into and partly through the 1960s."
