"El gobierno militar de Manuel A. Odría en Perú (1948-1956)" is a study on the military government led by General Manuel A. Odría in Peru from 1948 to 1956, providing a glimpse into a little-known period of the country's history. The work explores how Odría's dictatorship was legitimized by electoral processes and the consent of the United States, and highlights his efforts to pioneer many social issues that were later upturned by later governments, such as the one headed by General Juan Velasco Alvarado (1968-1975).
