This essay will attempt to answer the question, ?Evaluate the success of Juan Peron in personalizing power[2] in the political and social sectors of Argentina from 1946 ? 1955.? The two main sources that will be assessed for their OPVL are Politics and Education in Argentina, 1946 ? 1962, by Monica Esti Rein and The History of Argentina by Daniel K. Lewis. This investigation will only focus on Juan Peron?s efforts to ?Peronize? the Argentine government and educational system.

Also included is a timeline of historic events in Argentina, biographical sketches of key people in its history, a glossary of terms, and a bibliographic essay of works in English for further study, making it a valuable source. ...read more.

Conclusion

and obedient, accepting what others decided for him, and not a sharp, thinking intellectual, curious and critical, and always looking for alternatives.” [27] Part E: Conclusion Juan Peron was successful in personalizing power through the reorganization of the government and the education system. He met resistance to the opposition with force by arresting the members of the parliament that expressed anti – Peronism as well as limiting them from the access to the media. Furthermore, he aimed to reorganize the education system because, as Peron stated in a speech, "we have been fighting for five years now so that this just, free, and sovereign New Argentina might grow, ... but we know that the future is in the hands and the souls of children and young people...."[28] This being so, Perón believed that time and special attention should be devoted to them, thus resulting in his best attempts to increase the number of schools and the number of children attending these schools. As a result, with the increase in the enrollment of the children, Peron was effectively able to indoctrinate the children and disseminate the beliefs of Peronism.
