During 1976, Argentina was involved in what is known as the Dirty War. Led by General Jorge Videla, the war lasted until 1983
and saw the disappearance of many left-wing activists. A total of about 10,000 people were murdered or went missing during the
Dirty War.
In 1982, Argentina and Britain went to war over the Falkland Islands (referred to by Argentinians as the Islas Malvinas), and
Britain controlled the islands again. By 1983, inflation reached 900 percent, civilian rule was returned, and Raul Alfonsin became
president, and began investigating the human rights abuse during the Dirty War.
President Carlos Menem (Peronist Party) won the election in 1989. Menem began an economic austerity program and was
reelected in 1995. In 1992, the new Argentinian peso is put into use.
Geography
Argentina is located in southern South America, and is the world's largest Spanish-speaking country, and the eighth largest
country by land area in the whole world. Argentina can be divided into six regions: Gran Chaco, Mesopotamia, the Pampas,
Patagonia, Cuyo, Argentine Northwest. Mesopotamia in Argentina is the lowland between the Parana and Uruguay Rivers, the
Pampas are the fertile lowlands in the center and east of Argentina. Patagonia is the region at the far south of Argentina (and
Chile) which contains part of the Andes Mountains and the plateau.
Argentina's major geographic features include the Andes Mountains and the coastal regions along the Atlantic Ocean. The major
rivers in Argentina include Parana, Pilcomayo, Paraguay, Uruguay, and the Colorado.
Argentina has a temperate climate, which ranges all the way from subtropical to subpolar (just north of Antarctica).
Politics
Argentina is a constitutional republic, with its capital in Buenos Aires. The president is the head of state, and the legislative
branch of government has a bicameral Congress, with a Senate and the Chamber of Deputies. One-third of party representatives
in the Senate must be women.
Argentina is divided into twenty-three provinces, and one autonomous city, Buenos Aires. Each province is a representative
republic, and can have its own constitution and local government. The provinces are further divided into departments and
municipalities. The federal district of Buenos Aires is divided into partidos, and the city itself is separated into communes.
Travel
Argentina is very urbanized more than 90 percent of its population lives in the cities. Greater Buenos Aires metropolitan area
has become one of the largest urban areas in the world. Other major cities in Argentina include Cordoba, Rosario, Mendoza, and
Tucuman. These cities offer cultural experience, culinary pleasures, like the world renowned beef, and dances like the Argentine
Tango.
Argentina offers diverse terrain and outdoor adventures. The famous region of Patagonia at the southern end of Argentina is a
popular destination for people who love the outdoors. The steppes of Patagonia draw backpackers from around the world. Other
natural attractions include wildlife, like the penguin colonies on along the coast, great waterfalls and lakes, and the Glacier Perito
Moreno.

Education
Argentina's education is regulated by the national public education system, which is funded by taxes up through undergraduate
school, though private schools are also available at all levels. Attendance is mandatory for students up to seventeen years of
age. The school system is divided into elementary school and high school, each lasting around six years in many areas. The
polimodal (polymodal) system is used in many parts of the country, but not Buenos Aires and some provinces, which follow the
traditional Argentinian school model instead.
Though universities in Argentina are free of tuition, there are still other fees associated with attending university, and without an
effective scholarship system in place, lower income students can find it difficult to afford higher education. Argentina's universities
have gained worldwide recognition, and have produced three Nobel Prize winners in the sciences.
Trivia
About 70 kilograms of beef is consumed per capita in Argentina every year.
Argentina houses the highest point in both the Southern and Western Hemispheres in Mendoza.
The musical Evita was written about Eva Peron, the wife of Argentina's famous best known president, Juan Peron.
Revolutionary Ernesto Che Guevara was born in Rosario, Argentina.
Argentina has the highest GDP per capita in Latin America, and is classified as a secondary emerging market.
