Perón of Argentina: Case Study in Political Charismatic Leadership

Perón of Argentina: Case Study in Political Charismatic Leadership

Date: August 1967
Creator: Brink, Carol Lynn Robinson
Description: The thesis here is that the Argentina of the 1940's provided a perfect matrix for the rise of a charismatic leader. Juan Perón did not emerge as an European-style fascist or the traditional Latin American dictator. Rather, he was called forth by his environment to exercise authority over his followers in a leader-mass, savior-disciple relationship. Perón's base environment was Argentine. Thus, Argentine patterns, values, and culture outlined the scope and methods of his rule. For this reason the total social and political behavior of the Argentine people will be studied and equated with the Perón phenomenon.

Date: January 1968
Creator: Clark, Robert B.
Description: This study is concerned with the political impact of the Supreme Court's decisions concerning state legislative apportionment.

Secondly, the study traces the major issues relating to judicial enforcement of the apportionment standards enunciated by the Supreme Court and the modification and development of those standards that followed the initial decisions. Finally, the extent to which reapportionment has been successfully enforced by the courts may suggest some tentative conclusions about the viability and utility of the equal population doctrine as a constitutional standard, as well as some of the possible political consequences of enforcement of that standard.

The Impact of United States Military Policy on Nationalist China, 1941-1945

The Impact of United States Military Policy on Nationalist China, 1941-1945

Date: January 1962
Creator: Kirby, James Dixon
Description: The United States suffered a rather severe diplomatic defeat in the collapse of the Nationalist government of China following World War II. It may be possible, by reducing the policy to its essential elements, to determine if a course of action in one given component of the policy was correct or in error, or if it is the usual gray area--neither black nor white, neither totally correct nor totally in error--that defies a valid conclusion.

The Goals of the Peace Corps

The Goals of the Peace Corps

Date: January 1966
Creator: Thompson, Christine E.
Description: Agencies such as the Peace Corps are by nature benevolent, which means they are devised for the expressed purpose of granting aid to other persons. In this case, the avowed purpose is aid for the underdeveloped nations of the world. However, politicians lodged in governmental authority are not humanistic solely for the sake of helping others; there are political aims to be gained. What these aims are and how they affect the operation of a youth corps for peace is a major concern of this thesis.
