The subject of Mónica Rein's Politics and Education in Argentina, 1946-1962 is precisely what its title indicates: Peronism and the manifold impacts of Peronism on the education system, top to bottom; and the politics of de-Peronization, from 1955 to 1962, and the many consequences of that enterprise for the educational system. Her area of concern is the operational and institutional moves of the successive regimes (Perón, the Revolución Libertadora,$$ Frondizi); she does not, she says (p. 204), address the question of how, or whether, the Peronist world-view was received and absorbed by the young until 1955, or how or whether Perón was expunged from the hearts of the Argentines afterwards. Those are even more difficult questions, ones which will in the end demand an informed speculation --but Mónica Rein has provided the indispensable information and heuristic framework without which such speculation would simply be empty vaporing.
