argentina: recent history

Amazing to think that when I wrote the following nine posts, Wikipedia had just come online with minimal content. Who knew how much it would grow?! All the info below can be found easily on the internet today, but in 2002-03 few English-language summaries of Argentine history & current events existed.

Beginning in the 1970s, each section brings you progressively closer to my first blog post about Argentina in Feb 2002. Monthly summaries give an almost day-by-day snippet of major headlines to show how quickly changes occurred both before & after devaluation in December 2001.
