Note that subject searching isn't always straigtforward. Try a KEYWORDS ANYWHERE search to find a few relevant titles, for example: argentina and dirty war . Then click on the subject headings on those records to conduct a more comprehensive subject search.

Example of subject searches on the Argentina's dirty war:

  • Argentina - History - Dirty War, 1976-1983
  • Argentina - History - Dirty War, 1976-1983 - Religious aspects - Catholic Church
  • Argentina - Military policy - 20th century
  • Antisemitism - Argentina - History - 20th century
  • Church and state - Argentina - History - 20th century
  • Disappeared persons - Argentina - History
  • Fascism - Argentina - History - 20th century
  • Human rights - Argentina - History - 20th century
  • National socialism - Moral and ethical aspects - Argentina
  • Peronism
  • Political culture - Argentina - History - 20th century
  • Political persecution - Argentina - History - 20th century
  • Political violence - Argentina - History - 20th century
  • State-sponsored terrorism - Argentina - History - 20th century
  • Terrorism - Argentina-- History

Or, look up one of the books you're already found, perhaps from your syllabus, and use the subjects assigned to that collection to locate books on the same topic, for example, A Lexicon of Terror: Argentina and the Legacies of Torture.
