Is Argentine political culture favourably inclined toward democracy? What have been the principal changes in this culture during the transition period? What is the dynamic of discontent in Argentina? How are democratic, elitist, authoritarian, and populist orientations brought together in the population? Drawing on the results of data from multiple opinion polls taken throughout the transition period, Edgardo Catterberg addresses these and related questions and formulates a series of proposals concerning the evolution of political beliefs in Argentina. Catterberg finds that, after the 1983 defeat of the authoritarian regime, liberal orientations progressed, but they also subsequently receded in the face of unsatisfied expectations. Considering the predominant orientations, he concludes that the stability of political democracy in Argentina has few more serious challenges than the need to transform demanding political attitudes and behaviours into political patience.
