The Voice of the Great Leader

Felipe Pigna

NON FICTION. PLANETA, 2017. 560 PAGES

José de San Martín is one of the most renowned and revered men in the history of Argentina but also one of the least known as a human being. With the rigorous research and engaging style that have made him one of the best-read historians in Latin America, in this new book Felipe Pigna presents a biography of Argentina's most prominent founding father. The author investigates the possible mestizo origins of the heroic figure, his severe intellectual and military upbringing, his ideological loyalties and political projects and the controversial reasons behind his resignation and bizarre exile. The Voice of the Great Leader unpicks the myths and debates that surround San Martín to present a fully-rounded portrait of the man in both public and private.
