From the Foreword:
In Argentina: A City and a Nation principal emphasis is placed on the country’s formative years – the nineteenth century. The first chapter introduces the geography and the final chapter summarizes the contemporary scene. Other chapters explore the Spanish origins, the economies of the interior and the coast, the growth of cities and industry, the predominance of Buenos Aires, the struggles for political unity, and the achievement of nationhood. A political chronology and statistical tables are provided for reference, and the annotated bibliography is intended as a guide for further study.
