Summary

Rising from a childhood of poverty and disgrace, Eva Peron became one of the most influential figures in Argentina's history—first as a celebrity and then as the nation's First Lady. To the working classes, Peron was a saint who worked tirelessly to help the poor and improve life for Argentina's people. To the other members of society, however, Peron was seen as a selfish, arrogant woman who cared only about herself and her image. For decades, people have argued over whether she was an angel or the devil. This well-researched, compelling biography presents a balanced portrayal of Eva Peron's life and achievements, while looking at both sides of the controversy surrounding a woman who was truly larger than life.
