Schoultz examines the fundamental political cleavage between classical liberalism and the populist Peronist political movements in Argentina, identifying the socioeconomic structural features that led to this division and focusing on changes in social class composition that accompanied major demographic shifts and alterations in economic activity. He dominated the electoral process that liberals are able to control public policy only through ties to the military.
