President Alfonsin holds the future of democracy in Argentina in his hands. The land is huge, naturally rich, and blessed with a constitution based on that of the United States, but none of this has brought either democracy or prosperity. He inherited a land at its nadir politically, economically, and morally. In this brilliant summary of the situation Poneman sounds the tocsin to the North that time may be running out for Alfonsin, and that authoritarianism in the form of the Church, the military, and the oligarchy waits eagerly in he wings. In the final assessment, he warns, all depends on the people and a national psyche does not change easily. Voting in itself is insufficientdemocracy imposes duties as well as rights and one them is to respect the outcome of elections. Highly recommended. Louise Leonard, Univ. of Florida Lib., Gainesville
