Concise, objective and entertaining account of a very dark period in Argentine history. A must read for anyone with an interest in understanding this very complex yet so appealing country. A first class journalistic job, and an homage to Robert Cox, an unrelenting and solitary fighter for freedom and the rule of law when we most needed someone like him.

By John Reichertz - Published on Amazon.com
David Cox has done a great job of showing Argentina as it was in the mid to late 70s and the efforts of one man to expose the vast human tragedy inflicted on the country, which for the most part lived in denial of the true effects of the military junta's dirty war. Newspaper editor Bob Cox, David's father, published what others were unwilling to say, hear, believe or think. Bob Cox provides the contrast to a society that lost its bearings. Few today remember that the Mothers of Plaza de Mayo, whose children were "disappeared" during the dirty war, in that time were referred to as the Mad Women of Plaza de Mayo. The book does not overlook this sort of detail, much of which has been swept under the rug as society attempts to come to terms with its own involvement. I lived in Argentina in this period, as a journalist, and can testify that this book, more than any other that I have read, brings you back to the scene.
