  • The Irish Legation in Perón’s Argentina (1948–55) by Paul Hand, School of Law and Government, Dublin City University. Detailed (18 sides) articles focuses on Irish diplomacy towards Peron. Through his interactions with diplomatic and journalistic contacts as well as with Irish- Argentinean acquaintances, the Irish diplomat, Murphy perceptively documented both the dubious economic policies and the increasing totalitarianism of the government, which ultimately paved the way for Perón’s downfall. In this sense, Murphy’s reports constitute a valuable analysis of one of the defining regimes of Latin American populism.  §

Eva Duarte/Perón biography sites

I am sorry to say there is a multitude of truly grim fan sites about Eva Perón designed by film buffs and Madonna fans. (This now also applies to many of the Eva Peron videos posted on YouTube). It is very difficult - and time consuming - to sort out the valuable from the peripheral sites!! Eva Duarte - Writing & Speeches Death, legacy & obituaries
  • BBC: Eva Perón Dies Read about Eva Perón's death from cancer in 1953. However the main value are perhaps the links to video and audio recordings of and about Eva
  • Saga Of Eva Perón: 12 Years To Power New York Times obituary, July 27, 1952
  • Evita: 50 years as a symbol BBC article looking back at the impact of Eva Duarte
  • Eva Duarte Clarín (one of Argentina's leading dailies) mutimedia site on the death of Eva Duarte. Audio excerpts, but site is not too well designed
  • She Died Just In Time Listen to this BBC programme which looks at the legacy of the former first lady of Argentina, Eva Perón. Contains archive of Evita, and interviews conducted in Argentina, including Evita's grand-niece, senior Peronist politician and friend to Evita, Senator Antonio Cafiero, Ana Macri, Evita's right hand woman and Argentina's first female MP, and Doctor Hipolito Irigoyen, grand-nephew of an Argentine president and an early Evita detractor.
