A New York Times Notable Book of the Year and Finalist for the L.L. Winship / PEN New England Award in 1998, A Lexicon of Terror is a sensitive and unflinching account of the sadism, paranoia, and deception the military junta unleashed on the Argentine people from 1976 to 1983. This updated edition features a new epilogue that chronicles major political, legal, and social developments in Argentina since the book's initial publication. A Lexicon of Terror vividly evokes this shocking era and tells of the long-lasting effects it has left on the Argentine culture.

Index
Ms. Feitlowitz does an excellent job of combining moving, personal accounts of the Dirty War with insightful glimpses into the complexity of current events in Argentina. * Dr. Jose Miguel Vivanco, Executive Director, Human Rights Watch/Americas * A major work that deserves to stand among the very best accounts of state terror and those who had the strength and luck to survive it. * Foreign Affairs * A magisterial work on a great subject. This is a book everyone should read. * Susan Sontag *
