A brand new edition of this classic Deutsch biography of Eva Peron. Eva Peron was a legend in her own lifetime and since her death in 1952 the legends have proliferated. By the end of the twentieth century she had been immortalised on stage and screen and is now regarded as one of the strongest, most idolised female icons of last century. Indeed, in what has become a self-fulfilling prophecy, one of her last apocalyptic speeches contained the declaration, "I will come again, and I will be millions." Evita tells the real story of this enigmatic popular heroine, a village girl who rose to stardom first as an actress, then as the mistress of Colonel Peron and finally as the world's most powerful presidential wife. In Evita, the authors ask: Was Eva a saint or a sinner? Why, after her death was there such a concerted effort to create a myth around her? Here are the answers, in this immensely revealing account of one of the world's most astonishing women.
