This chapter re-examines the relationship between Perónism and nationalism, focusing on the politics of history. It argues that F attempted to strike a precarious balance between the various existing forms of nationalism, seizing in particular on those elements that had already become largely accepted notions and symbols of what it meant to be Argentine. The simultaneous conversion of these into Perónist symbols formed the basis of Perón's anti-pluralist claim that his movement was the only legitimate expression of national identity. At the same time, the regime sought to marginalize those who sought to use nationalism for their own political purposes.
