Mark D. Szuchman is Professor Emeritus of Latin American History at Florida International University and the author of numerous books on Argentine history, including Order, Family and Community in Buenos Aires, 1810-1860 and Revolution and Restoration: The Rearrangement of Power in Argentina, 1776-1860.

As questions are raised about Pope Francis and the “dirty war,” it’s worth noting that few survived the conflict with perfect morality intact, says Mark Szuchman.
