SIMONOFF, Alejandro. Theory and practice of autonomy: Illia's foreign policy.Translated byMaría Julia Pich. Relac. int. (B. Aires) [online]. 2007, vol.3Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1515-3371.
This article is a summary of Alejandro Simonoff's doctoral thesis. The thesis originated from a number of papers written since the end of the 80s in which a double phenomenon was observed: 1) the existence of political instability which had the consequence of an erratic atttitude to foreign affairs by our country; and, 2) the absence of a proper categorisation of many periods of our present history. The question posed was if this could obey to two reasons or just one of them. In order to solve the dilemma the policy of radical Arturo Illia was analysed. Such government, being weak and showing internal and external conflict, was thus unstable and had trouble in defining the Argentine position in the Cold war from an autonomist perspective.
