Joseph A. Page, a Professor Emeritus at the Law Center and the Director of the CAROLA from 2003 to 2017, began writing about Brazil and Argentina in 1963. His first book, The Revolution That Never Was: Northeast Brazil, 1955-1964, appeared in 1972, and was translated into Portuguese by the Brazilian playwright Ariano Suassuna. His 1983 book, Peron: A Biography, was a bestseller for five months in Argentina. The latest revised edition appeared in 2014. In 1996, he contributed an extensive introduction to Evita: In My Own Words, which published the text of a manuscript believed to have been adapted from death-bed dictation by Eva Perón. The book has been translated into Italian, German, Dutch and Spanish. His 1995 book, The Brazilians, attempts to explain what makes Brazilians Brazilian.
