A critical, thoroughly researched biography of Argentina's most passionately cherished, and despised persona, Evita (Eva Peron among other names).

The myths surrounding her life, death, and burial often overshadow the reality of her life. This book attempts to present an accurate account of her life based on documented facts and the recollections of her personal confidantes. Evita invoked worship, lust, love, as well as hatred from various social classes in Argentina during her short life (1919-1952) primarily due to her role as the First Lady of Argentina, Juan Peron's wife and biggest supporter.
