Retired navy officer Adolfo Scilingo was the first man ever to break the Argentine military's code of silence, stunning his compatriots and the world by openly confessing his participation in the hideous practice of pushing live political dissidents out of airplanes during Argentina's dirty war. Available for the first time in the UK, with a new introduction by Judge Gabriel Cavallo on the upcoming military trials and a new epilogue by the author, Confessions of an Argentine Dirty Warrior includes the complete text of Scilingo's confession in the form of interviews given to Argentina's best-kwn investigative journalist, Horacio Verbitsky. The afterword by Juan Mendez, General Consel of Human Rights Watch, puts Adolfo Scilingo confession of atrocities committed during the 'dirty war' into a historical and international context.
Horacio Verbitsky is Argentina's leading investigative journalist, winner of the 1995 Latin American Studies Association Media Award, and author of a dozen books. He also presides over Argentina's main human rights organization, the Center for Legal and Social Studies. He lives in Buenos Aires.
