Beired’s study, originally submitted as his doctoral dissertation at the University of São Paulo, is a good example of the increasing interest in the Latin American right over the last decade. Long ruefully neglected by scholars, since the early 1990s an increasing number of articles and books have appeared that deal with right-wing movements and groups in various countries in more detail, for instance Sandra McGee Deutsch’s and Ronald H. Dolkart’s edited volume on the Argentine right from 1910 to the 1980s; Mario Sznajder’s and Alberto Spektorowski’s articles on the Chilean National Socialist Movement of the 1930s and the Argentine Nacionalistas of the 1930s and early 1940s, respectively; and Kevin J. Middlebrook’s recently edited book on conservative parties, the right, and democracy in Latin America, covering the last two decades. To this by no means complete list one certainly also has to add McGee Deutsch’s comparative work on the right in Argentina, Brazil, and Chile during the first half of the last century, published in the same year as Beired’s book.
