9780767066693: Biography - Evita: The Woman Behind the Myth

To some she was a hero. To others she was a symbol of naked ambition. To the world she remains a legend. Eva Duarte de Peron "Evita" is one of the most controversial figures in history. A minor actress when she married Argentine president-to-be Juan Peron her political power and prestige eventually equaled and perhaps eclipsed his. Was she a power-hungry Marie Antoinette as detractors claim? Or was she really the savior of the working poor? In this remarkable program rare photographs and films tell Evita's real story from her humble birth to her tragic death of cancer at 33. Close aids and bitter enemies offer their firsthand accounts and consider why she continues to fascinate us today.
