This second edition of Antonio Brión’s essays (first edition not reviewed in HAHR) stresses the well-worn theme of porteños versus provincianos. The focus unfortunately is frequently blurred and confused, even when he deals with his favorite themes of domination by Buenos Aires, Yankee imperialism, and centralization in government. Particularly interesting for the historian is a brief speech given in 1951 in which he bitterly criticized Peronista agricultural polices.
