Daniel James (historian)
Daniel James is a British historian educated at Oxford University. He received his doctorate from the London School of Economics. He is an expert in Peronism and the working class in Argentina. He is popular in Argentina as a result of his analysis of the Peronist government. His book "Resistance and Integration" is a landmark in the study of Peronism.
He has taught at Cambridge University, Yale and Duke University. From 1999 to 2007 he was the Bernardo Mendel Chair in Latin American History at Indiana University. He was the recipient of a 2006 Guggenheim fellowship. He now works at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, where he is Chair in Hispanic Studies and Modern Thought.
"In an important sense the working class [of Argentina] was constituted by Peron: its self-identification as a social and political force within national society was, in part at least, constructed by Peronist political discourse"
