WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE? THE SEARCH FOR ARGENTINA'S LOST CHILDREN.
Graham-Yooll, Andrew.

London: Seagull (Manifestos for the 21st century), 2011. 1st ed. 8vo, bds, 104 p., 2 end sheets, dust jacket. New Paperback 9781906497774 Who Do You Think You Are? is a powerful and startling look at our ideas of human identity as seen through the example of a generation of lost children born under Argentina's military dictatorship from 1976 to 1983. As Andrew Graham-Yooll explains, the killings during the dictatorship were enacted under a particularly chilling and conniving plan: A group of senior military officers drew up a policy of disappearing guerrilla rivals and subsequently forcing the adoption of their now orphaned children into the supposedly more suitable families of the ruling class. The goal of this practice was annihilation and cultural domination, the cancellation of unwanted and threatening family identities. (Item ID: 154837)
