The The coup d'état of 1976 was a key and dark landmark in the history of Argentina, one that has been demanding ever since intense efforts of analysis. The complex political and economic system established in the aftermath of the Second World War was brutally transformed under the self-denominated "Proceso de ReorganizaciÃ³n Nacional". Unlike some of the previous military coups, the longstanding effects of this "processing" of Argentine society are a complex legacy still present at many levels of Argentine society.
In the past 40 years scholars have approached the dictatorship from a number of different perspectives. From the first contemporary reactions, the literature inspired by the so-called transition to democracy or the "two demons" to the recent rereading of state repression, the opening of archives and the studies of collective memory and new understandings of militant activity, the field has been characterised by strongly diverse methodological and political traditions.
