El País Que Se Busca a Si Mismo
El País Que Se Busca a Si Mismo
By Ruben Franklin Máyer
Claridad, 1944, 492 pp.

Not the least interesting thing about this book is the fact that it was published under the present political dispensation in the Argentine, for the author's point of view is professedly democratic and anti-totalitarian. He is opposed to the topheavy and corrupt bureaucracy of the federal government, to the urban oligarchy in Buenos Aires, to the absentee landowners of the latifundia, to foreign capital, and to all those forces which he believes are responsible for the decline of faith in democratic processes among the youth of Argentina. His own faith rests on the gaucho and his hope is in a thoroughgoing agrarian reform.
