Analysis – Argentine Caudillo: Juan Manuel de Rosas

John Lynch, Argentine Caudillo: Juan Manuel de Rosas, (Wilmington, DE: Scholarly Resources, 2001).

In the study of early South American governance, author and historian John Lynch focuses on the emergence of a governed society in Argentina driven by the influence of Juan Manuel de Rosas.  Lynch chronicles the lifespan of Rosas beginning with the childhood influence of his mother.  The author then transitions to Rosas the private businessman.  These accounts are followed by details on his rise in prominence throughout the gaucho society, including his eventual rise to power as head of the Argentine state.  Lynch then pivots to a descriptive accounting of the style and manner of rule throughout Rosas’ career.  The chronology concludes with a brief accounting of his removal and exile.
