Over the past twenty years, the field of Latin American studies has witnessed a proliferation of research on the history of the region’s Jewish population. For the most part, these studies have focused primarily upon the themes of Jewish immigration and the acculturation of Jews to the surrounding Latin and Catholic society. In Argentina, Israel, and the Jews, historian Raanan Rein advances our view of Latin American Jewry into the political realm as well, examining the complex triangular relationship between Argentina’s Jewish community, its government, and the state of Israel, in the critical era from 1946-1962 which witnessed both the rise and fall of Juan Perón and the establishment of the new Jewish state.
