About the Author

James P. Brennan is Professor of History at the University of California, Riverside, where he teaches modern Latin American history.  


"Overall, Missing Bones is a fantastic book that asserts the importance of understanding Córdoba within the context of the history of Argentina’s Dirty War"
*H-Net Reviews*

"Brennan convincingly analyzes how remembering the Dirty War in Argentina is not only an individual or private matter but also encompasses an institutional memory fomented and fashioned by the policies of the Kirchner governments (96). By focusing on Córdoba, Brennan successfully captures the role of the state in constructing public memory of the Dirty War."
*Journal of Interdisciplinary History*

"Exceptionally smart book . . . a tour de force."
*Estudios Interdisciplinarios de América Latina*

"The strength of Brennan’s book is to enable us to reflect critically on both the dirty war . . . and the memory and justice politics that followed."
*Latin American Research Review*
