Perón and Perónism – The Life & Thoughts of Juan Domingo Perón, is unique, especially among English language books, insofar as it is not so much a biography of the remarkable Argentine president, but an explanation of Perónism in theory and practice. While the lives of Juan, and especially Eva, Perón are relatively easy to access, seldom is it that a biography of the Peróns, or even a scholarly history of Argentina, details the doctrine of Justicialismo.

In Perón and Perónism, Bolton draws on primary documents and speeches to define the Perónist doctrine that has moved the hearts and minds of the majority of Argentines for generations. Particularly unique is the placing of Justicialism as a form of ‘national socialism’ in historical and ideological contexts, and a consideration of its antecedents. Here Perón is shown to have been not only a great leader, who built the foundations of modern Argentina, but a philosopher who drew upon various philosophical schools, from Classical Greece onwards in synthesising a ‘third position’ that transcends capitalism and communism, Right and Left, and exposes ‘demoliberalism’ as a fraud. Here we also see a man of vision, an exponent of geopolitical blocs to counter globalist hegemony, whose ideals remain profoundly relevant in the age of globalisation.
