Audible Editor Reviews

Narrator Dennis Holland takes on an authoritative tone in his performance of Argentinidad by a founding editor of acclaimed intellectual journal n+1, Benjamin Kunkel. Holland persuasively describes Kunkel's nuanced analysis of why Argentina repeatedly suffers political and economic disasters, pinpointing causes such as a series of dictators who wasted opportunities for change, as well as the lingering influence of three-time president Juan Perón. Kunkel also turns a sharp eye towards former radical leftist Peronist Youth and now political power couple Néstor and Cristina Kirchner - who have both served as president of Argentina - examining their rejection of neoliberalism and their continuing support of the legacy of a dictatorship.

Publisher's Summary

Nstor and Cristina Kirchner have presided in a marital tag-team tango over the executive branch of one of the largest countries in the Americas. In this single, from n+1 magazine, Issue 11: "Dual Power", n+1 founding editor and acclaimed novelist Benjamin Kunkel looks at the Kirchner's relationship to the radical leftist Peronist Youth in the university town of La Plata, just outside Buenos Aires.

Three decades after their days as radical students, both Nstor and Cristina Kirchner have served as the president of Argentina. While they have hardly governed as the leftists they appeared to be back in La Plata, the legacy of their militant youth shines through in what may be the two central features of their tenure: the rejection of neoliberalism and the placement of a dictatorship at the center of national memory.
