The largest, most revealing and most controversial collection of documents from the final years of Juan Domingo Perón. Juan Bautista Yofre focuses not on the presence of the leader as Argentine president, but instead sheds light on his monumental absence, on how he projected political action while in exile. The author reveals unpublished treasures from the “crocodile room,” the underground archive kept by Perón in his home in Madrid. Yofre gained access to the leader’s personal archives, as well as a series of document collections that are only now seeing the light for the first time in these pages.
