Summary note
"Mariana Llanos offers a new appraisal of the relationship between the Presidency and Congress in Argentina over the first two decades of its democratic regime. In returning to democratic rule in 1983, Argentina seemingly put behind it years of military dictatorship and political instability. However, many assessments of the new regime continue to be negative. The author uses the processes of privatization and state reform in Argentina to re-assess the performance, functions and relative stature of the institutions of the Presidency and Congress as Argentina embarked on its programme of change. This book is a valuable contribution to the debate on the development of political institutions in Latin America."--Jacket.
