Juan Perón was the democratically elected president of Argentina from 1946 until he was deposed by a military coup in 1955. He remained in exile for almost twenty years before being reelected in 1973. At different times the Argentine people considered him a crusader for social justice, a tyrant, or a savior. Today Peronism, the political ideology based on Perón’s principles and policies, still fluctuates in popularity, and this project seeks to communicate a fuller understanding of how political ideologies and politicians themselves cycle in and out of popularity through study of Perón.
