   schema:description "Each contributor has his or her own image of Sarmiento, but whether re-assessing him as a writer, a thinker, or as an advocate of democracy and economic development, all are aware of how the underlying theme of El Facundo - the clash between urban and rural worlds, between civilization and barbarism - influenced his outlook. Their essays add to our knowledge not only of Sarmiento, but also of a key transitional period in Argentina's development."@en ;
