Eva Peron, the flamboyant Argentine First Lady, died 60 years ago. But her influence lives on as an inspiration to some and as a celebrity icon. It is a divisive legacy. Many families in Argentina have a tale to tell about Evita, a young woman from a poor family who rose to prominence as the second wife of President Juan Peron. I saw her in the lift in Congress and she held my hand. The Evita Museum, in the fashionable and quirky district of Palermo in Buenos Aires, is now home to her many ball gowns, portraits and memorabilia. The museum itself is housed in the mansion that was once a shelter set up for single mothers by Evita.

Eva Perón, the young wife of Argentine president Juan Peron, was adored by the masses. Eva worked tirelessly for her foundation and therefore was not surprised that she was feeling exhausted in early 1951. She also had aspirations to run for vice president alongside her husband in the upcoming November election. Grove/Atlantic, 1996. Eva Perón: The Myths of a Woman. University of Chicago Press, 1996.

A frank, in-depth portrait of the country girl who became one of Argentina's most powerful political figures chronicles her rise to power and her losing struggle against death at the age of thirty-three.

The first half of "Eva, Evita" deals with the life and death of Eva Duarte de Peron. Born into poverty, she left her family at age fourteen to pursue a theatrical career. She met Juan Peron, a widower colonel, and managed his political career and election to President of Argentina. She took from the rich to give to the poor working class (and to the richer - namely, herself and her closest friends) who worshipped her as a saint. Evita died of ovarian cancer.
The second half of the book illustrates just how strong Evita's power was. Juan, a pedophile, shopped for mistresses in the school system. He was unable to control his staff, and the people revolted. His hold over the Argentine people was released, and he was forced into exile.
There are many books about Eva Peron. This book paints a better picture than others I have read; it also casts Juan Peron in a more unfavorable light. "Eva, Evita" goes into depth about the embalming and preservation of Evita's corpse, its theft, and the doctor who spent three years preserving her for posterity. These sections are incredibly morbid, but are important to the history of the legend of Eva Duarte de Peron. There was a bit more political background than I expected; however, this gave me a more broad view of everything surrounding the events that led to Juan Peron's election and fall from grace.

This is an interesting little book, especially amusing in its attention to events surrounding Eva Peron's dead body and the doctor who preserved it.
The Perons were merely opportunist thugs. They and their associates got into power by force, then systematically looted Argentina's wealth. Propaganda forced everyone to pretend to admire them, and force required that everyone obey them.
Evita's life, according to this book, generally follows the path portrayed in the Webber/Rice musical, but differed significantly along the way. The musical version integrated apochryphal information, legendary stories, rather than employing hard fact. A major example is "the first man to be of use to Eva Duarte." In the musical it was a popular tango singer named Augustin Migaldi -- as it was so in Evita's accepted local legend, since Migaldi was a relatively prominent performer. The real guy, though, was a second-tier fellow named Armani, who helped Eva settle in the big city then pretty much vanished from history.
I wish the book had delved into more detail regarding more of Eva's specific activities -- such as the mechanisms/laws enacted to take over all the British holdings in Argentina -- but it was a good overview, a good foundation for moving on to other explorations of that blonde thug's puny excuse for a life.
